Rwanda plans to amend its constitution to allow for presidential and parliamentary elections to be held at the same time, according to a statement outlining cabinet resolutions, seen by Reuters on [25 March]. The statement said that the cabinet on [24 March] approved a proposal by President Paul Kagame to amend the country’s constitution to allow “harmonisation of parliamentary and presidential elections calendars”. It did not say when the amendment would become effective. Parliamentary elections are currently scheduled to take place in August this year, but if the constitutional change is implemented, they may be pushed back to next year to be held simultaneously with presidential polls.
