The Assistant Interior Minister and the Secretary General of the High Elections Commission (HEC) Counselor Zaghloul el-Belshi said that number of judges who agreed to supervise the constitution is 9000 judges with all different judicial bodies.
In the mean time, Head of Judges Club Counselor Ahmed el-Zend said on Tuesday 11/12/2012 that 90 per cent of judges refuse to supervise the referendum on the constitution, set for Saturday.
At a press conference, he noted that an opinion poll among judges indicated that most of them rejected the move.
He added that the reason behind the stance was that the content of the draft constitution and the constitutional declaration undermined the judicial authority.
Judges are only working for Egypt and its people, he stressed.
