During the official launch of the National Dialogue Forum, president Lungu urged the delegates to fully participate in the process and deliver a refined document.
The Head of State said that the dialogue forum may be extended to cover all the areas that were required to deliver an acceptable document.
Delegates are supposed to deliberate on the amendment of the Constitution of Zambia Act number 2 of 2016 as well as reform the law on the Electoral process, the public order and the regulation of the Political parties’ bill based on submissions from various stakeholders.
President Lungu commended the church, traditional leaders, civil Society organizations and political parties that have turned up to attend the National Dialogue Forum.
He has expressed hope that resolutions will culminate into acceptable amendments to bills under discussion.
The National Dialogue Forum opened in Lusaka on Tuesday with the notable absence of the three Church Mother Bodies names the Zambia Council for Catholic Bishops, Council of Churches in Zambia and the Evangelical Fellowship of Zambia.
Twelve lawmakers from the UPND have joined the discussion while the rest of the legislators have shunned the caucus.
