The Democratic Republic of Congo is in the process of developing a new constitution, which should pave the way for general elections scheduled for later this year.
The draft constitution was adopted by parliament in May, but before entering into force, the new constitution has to be submitted to a referendum.
Analysts say the draft constitution is the most liberal the country has ever had. According to the new constitution the president can be elected for a maximum of two five-year terms.
Harare - The Pan-African Women conference on "Culture of Peace in Africa" adopted a Declaration that seeks to promote peace on the continent by involving the active participation of women in peace talks. The conference was held on the Tanzanian island of Zanzibar in May 1999.
