This provisional paper seeks to analyse the provisions of COPAC’s Draft Constitution which have a bearing on elections and electoral processes. The approach adopted in this paper is that each provision which has a bearing on elections and electoral processes is identified, explained and analysed.
The analysis focuses on the legal meaning of the provision and its practical implications. Special attention is paid to how any provision relates to the current law with a view to illustrating the extent, if any, to which the Draft Constitution addresses defects on electoral matters in the current constitution.
