Spokesman for Egypt’s Constitutional Assembly, Wahid Abdel-Maguid, has announced the assembly will conclude the drafting of articles in September and will then have the drafting committee vote on them. He also told Shorouk newspaper that the constitution would then be adopted in the event of a consensus or voted on if contentious issues arise. He went on to cite the structure of government, Article 2 of the constitution, and military jurisdiction as contentious issues that could lead to delays. Abdel-Maguid specifically pointed to Article 2, which specifies the role of religion and the jurisdiction of Shari’a law over legislation, as a major issue likely to be voted on at a certain point. Egypt’s Administrative Judiciary Court of the State Council ruled to postpone a case calling for the dissolution of the Constituent Assembly until 24 September. The assembly was appointed by a Parliament that has already been dissolved in a ruling by the Constitutional Court.
