Aboul-Fotouh: Constitutional Amendments Must Include Article 77
Dr. Abdel Moneim Abul Fotouh- member of the MB Executive Bureau- said in statement to Ikhwanweb that:" The suggested constitutional amendments that president Mubarak spoke about in his speech, yesterday, are tailored by the new National Party group that proved that the issue of security and protecting people have no value in their eyes, pointing out that this group is stronger and more dangerous to the country than the old guard..

Dr. Abdel Moneim Abul Fotouh- member of the  MB Executive Bureau- said in statement to Ikhwanweb that:" The suggested constitutional amendments that president Mubarak spoke about in his speech, yesterday, are tailored by the new National Party group that proved that the issue of security and protecting people have no value in their eyes, pointing out that this group is stronger and more dangerous to the country than the old guard..


This group wants to draft a system to protect it after handing Egypt over to foreign powers, " Aboul-Fotouh confirmed, adding that turning a blind eye to the demands of the judges, using security to beat them, and issuing a law of jailing journalists to be worse than the current one, all these prove and confirm the above mentioned.


Aboul-Fotouh warned that the NDP group is serving a foreign agenda for the region, especially in Egypt, confirming that this is their real intentions, something he considered as swimming against the current, stressing that these plans will be foiled because the Arabs and Muslims faced them and managed to confront them.


If, Aboul-Fotouh argues, the purposes of this group are achieved, backwardness will increase in the country which will be deprived of the best of its sons when they are thrown behind bars. The Muslim Brotherhood’s attitude towards the constitutional amendments is clear and the MB parliamentarians have declared the group’s stance towards the constitutional amendments and constitutional reform, he adds.


Aboul-Fotouh thought the President would discuss amending Article 77 if he actually seeks political reforms; however, "not speaking about amending it confirms the reports that the coming constitutional amendments are dedicated to serve the National Party and to reinforce the domination of the ruling regime" according to him .


Aboul-Fotouh expressed his doubts regarding the coming constitutional amendments amid the ambiguity shrouding them and not discussing them or seeking viewpoints of the political powers and civil society institutions.
