Egyptian Prime Minister Hisham Kandil has assigned Minister of Legal and Parliamentary Affairs Amr Salem to write a report on the controversial articles of the new constitution.
"In light of fulfilling the promises of the national dialogue, I have assigned the Legal and Parliamentary Affairs Minister to write a report on the controversial articles of the new constitution," Kandil said in a Facebook post on his official page on Wednesday.
The national dialogue, called by President Mohamed Mursi, had agreed on Tuesday to form a legal-political committee to review proposed amendments to the articles of the constitution then present them to political forces.
The committee will group 10 law professors and five politicians who represent the main political trends in Egypt, including opposition forces who refused to attend the meeting, the national dialogue had decided.
Opposition forces have complained that the new constitution does not represent all Egyptians while undermines the rights of minorities and social freedoms.
