  • Egypt army suspends constitution, calls early presidential elections

    Defense Minister Abdel Fattah El Sisi.

    CAIRO – Egypt’s top army commander Abdel Fattah al-Sisi said on Wednesday that the army has agreed with political forces to suspend the constitution and delegate the head of the constitutional court as an honorary president until early presidential elections are held.

    Sisi added in a televised speech, attended by Azhar Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayeb, head of Egypt’s Coptic Orthodox Church Pope Tawadros ll and Dostour Party head Mohamed ElBaradei, on Wednesday that they have decided on early presidential elections.

    The head of Egypt’s constitutional court was granted the authority to issue constitutional decrees until a new president is elected.

    The meeting also decided to form a national coalition government, form a committee of experts from all backgrounds to amend the constitution which has been temporarily suspended and asked the constitutional court to issue a new parliamentary elections law.

    Sisi added that they also decided to release a new document that guarantees press freedom and form a committee grouping national figures for Egypt’s higher national interest.

    As soon as the speech ended, religious channels Al Hafez and Al Nas were blacked out, as well as the pro-Muslim Brotherhood channel Misr 25.

    However, Sisi made no mention of the fate of the Shura Council, the Upper House of Parliament, which is expected to be dissolved through a constitutional declaration by the acting head of state, Adel Mansour, the current Cheif of the Higher Constitutional Court.
