Kigali – Rwandan lawmakers voted on Tuesday in support of a constitutional change to allow strongman Paul Kagame a third term in power as president, backing a petition signed by millions of citizens.

“I want to thank all members of parliament for showing support to the people’s wishes,” Speaker of Parliament Donatilla Mukabalisa said, after both the lower and upper houses voted in the first step of the process for constitutional change. Any change must be also passed by a national referendum.
