A number of the constituent assembly members are currently holding a joint meeting with secretary general of the Conference Party Ayman Nour to discuss the demands of civil powers that froze their membership in the assembly, Abul Ela Madi, head of al-Wasat Party and member of the assembly, said on Wednesday.
An agreement was reached to add a member of those who froze their membership to a mini drafting committee and work on a formula that achieves consensus for all controversial articles before the final vote, Madi told Aswat Masriya.
The party head rejected a proposal to "extend the assembly's work period for three more months".
"December 12 - which is the date set by the complementary constitutional declaration of March 2011 - is a final date for completing the assembly's tasks," he added.
A number of the constitution-drafting body members belonging to civil powers had suspended their participation in the ongoing meetings of the assembly's general sessions.
In a statement issued on Wednesday noon, they threatened to freeze their membership in the assembly if their demands are not seriously considered.
