Senior Egyptian: Draft Constitution will Cause Crises


Sheikh Hazem Salah Abu-Ismail said, Thursday, that a recently-submitted draft of a constitution constitutes a danger for Egyptian state institutions. Interviewed by Al-Masri Al-Yaum, the Salafi former presidential candidate said the authority of the president and the prime minister overlap.

Abu-Ismail said that adopting the draft would lead to crises and called on the political forces in Egypt to join his initiative to pass a temporary constitution.
