March 15th, 2011 by Editor

 The Egyptian Organization for Human Rights (EOHR) is holding a panel discussion on Wednesday 16/3/2011 entitled: “Constitutional Amendments between Acceptance and Rejection” at the headquarters of EOHR at 12 P.M. with the participation of a group of law professors and representatives of political parties and human rights activists.

The Panel discussion will discuss the suggested constitutional amendments and the demands and goals of the political powers from these amendments. Also different opinions will be argued regarding these amendments as some may believe that these amendments will achieve the demands of the people and the revolution temporarily in order to come over the current transitional phase while others reject amending the constitution as they demand that a new constitution be drafted especially after the whole regime was brought down which entails the falling down of the constitution as well according to the revolutionary legitimacy arising from the revolution of the 25th of January. In addition to that, the panel discussion will look into observing the referendum concerning these amendments.

The participants of the panel discussion will include Mr. Essam Al Islamboly, the lawyer of court of cassation, Mr. Essan Shiha, a lawyer of cassation and a member of the supreme committee of the Wafd Party, Mr. Farid Zahran, the director of Al Mahrousa Center, Mr. Ahmed Abd Al Hafez, a lawyer of cassation, Dr. Mustapha Al Nasharty, an economics professor at the Masr University for Sciences and Technology (MUST), Dr. Ahmed Abu Baraka, a member of the people’s assembly and Dr. Diyaa Rashwan the expert at the Al Ahram Center for Political and Strategic Studies (ACPSS).
