The ruling military council held an emergency meeting Friday to discuss how they would proceed after the dissolution of Parliament. All members were in attendance.
An official source told Al-Masry Al-Youm that, “The military council has begun important and intensive consultations with legal experts in order to write a constitutional declaration outlining the standards of the Constituent Assembly.”
“The complementary declaration will also stipulate the powers of the new president, and will likely be issued within hours,” the source added.
The source pointed out that the presidential powers would be derived from the Constitutional Declaration issued in March 2011. He added that the new president would be sworn in before the general assembly of the Supreme Constitutional Court.
