Passage of the Draft constitution is expected to bring radical changes to the way the country is governed, amongst which include the creation of a new chamber of Parliament and the devolution of government local counties. A vote against the draft, on the other hand, will see the process sent back to Parliament for a fresh start.

Updates on the result of the vote will be published as soon as it is available.
