FJP MPs: Consensus Opportunity Enhanced after Upholding Rule of Law
Dr. Mohamed Beltagy, member of parliament and member of the Executive Office of the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP), said that the opportunity for consensus is greatly enhanced in light of the court’s decision to block the newly elected Constituent Assembly tasked with writing Egypt’s new Constitution.
Earlier, the Administrative Judicial Court issued a decision to stop the implementation of Parliament’s decision for 50% of the CA’s membership to be from within the two houses of Egyptian parliament, with the other 50% from outside.
Dr. Beltagy considered the verdict an opportunity to review the political crisis, a chance for everyone to resolve the constitutional panel with consultation, agreement and harmony.
