The third round of the national dialogue will be launched under the auspices of President Mohamed Morsi headed by Vice President Counselor Mahmoud Mekki.

During This round two meetings will be held: in the first meeting, the committee of expertise chosen by Dr. Mohamed Selim al-Awa in the first round aims at discussing the suggested articles for amendment in the draft constitution delivered by the participants in the second round.

Also, the members of this committee will determine the nomination measures which will be adopted by the political powers for suggesting their candidates to complete the membership of Shura Council (SC). These measures will be put forth to the president by Rapporteurs of the committee Eng. Abul-Ela Madi.

The third meeting includes a number of political parties, national symbols and public figures. The participants will discuss the results that the committee reached.

The presidency is keen on communicating with non-participant political powers to survey their opinions on suggested subjects.

The national dialogue will remain open for these political trends to receive their suggestions whether concerning draft constitution or SC nominations.

The goal of this meeting is to reach measures and decisions by national consensus.
