The State Council's Judges Club decided on Monday 10/12/2012 to supervise the public referendum on the draft constitution on condition that the polling stations and judges are well protected.
Egyptians need judges to supervise the referendum to be held on December 15, Counselor Hamdi Yassin, the club's chief and deputy Chairman of the State Council said in a press release.
Judges of the State Council will rise above the schism between President Mohamed Morsi's supporters and opponents in order to achieve the rule of the law, he said.
The club asserted the importance of stopping the clashes between Morsi's supporters and opponents as well as ending the siege imposed by some protesters on the Supreme Constitutional Court and other national institutions as a condition to supervise the coming referendum.
Meanwhile, Head of the Judges Club Ahmed el-Zend will hold a press conference on Tuesday 11/12/2012 to announce the judges' position on watching over the referendum on the nation's new constitution.
He will also announce the judges' opinion on the last constitutional declaration.
