The Muslim Brotherhood on Thursday criticized the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF) for its intent to announce a declaration that would set general guidelines for the constitutional committee to abide by when writing Egypt’s new Constitution. The group views the declaration as having the potential to inhibit the freedom of parliamentarians when selecting members of the committee.
The military council had previously said that the guidelines for writing the Constitution would be approved after they were agreed upon by all “national forces”.
The Brotherhood said that it considered the term “national forces” vague and openly wondered what would happen if those forces could not agree on the guidelines.
