Egypt: FJP Deputy Says Draft Constitution Fit for Post-Revolution Egypt

Egypt's constituent assembly has drafted a constitution fit for post-revolution Egypt and fulfills the hopes of the martyrs and the injured, Essam al-Erian, deputy head of the Muslim Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party (FJP), said on Friday.

The lies promoted against the assembly "will collapse" after the constitution is read, al-Erian added.

Egypt's constituent assembly finalized on Friday morning the draft constitution by consensus.

The draft will be presented to President Mohamed Mursi on Saturday in preparation for putting it to a popular referendum.

"Everyone will see when they read the constitution that it is every Egyptian's pride ... We drafted a constitution fit for post-revolution Egypt," al-Erian wrote on his Facebook page.
