Egypt’s Court Rejects Dissolving The Constituent Assembly

The Supreme Constitutional Court in Egypt rejected dissolving the Constituent Assembly that drafted the new constitution, and also rejected annulling its formation. In its verdict, the court depended on the constitutionality of the criteria of electing members of the Constituent Assembly law.

It was expected that the court returns its final verdict last month, pursuant to its decision issues in an earlier session last month.

It is worth mentioning that the Constituent Assembly drafted Egypt’s new constitution in December, and then held a referendum on December 15th of 2012, and it won by the majority.
