The Botswana Congress Party (BCP) has withdrawn the Delimitation Bill that was presented to Parliament by Okavango Member of Parliament (MP), Bagalatia Aarone.

Initially the BCP was of the view that the Judicial Service Commission (JSC) was misled to think it executed its mandate in accordance with the Constitution of Botswana in appointing the Delimitation Commission. The secretary general of the BCP, Kesitegile Gobotswang, last year even wrote to the chairperson of the JSC, Chief Justice Maruping Dibotelo, about certain irregularities in appointing the Delimitation Commission.

The BCP president Dumelang Saleshando has said his party has decided to withdraw the Bill after they realised that the Constitution had other provisions that allow for delimitation of constituencies. The party had wanted 10 additional constituencies to their current 59 constituencies.
