March 20th, 2012 by Editor

The Egyptian Organization for Human Rights (EOHR) holds a roundtable discussion meeting for the professors of constitutional law, political science, parliamentarians, public figures and political and human rights’ activists. The meeting will tackle the formation of the National Constitutional Assembly, %50 parliamentarians and %50 non-parliamentarians. The meeting will be held on March 21, 2012, 6 pm, at the headquarters of EOHR.

Mr. Hafez Abu Seada, the head of EOHR, stated that the parliamentary decision for formation of the National Constitutional Assembly will lead to inequality of opportunities between the different national political powers. This will not comply with the international standards emphasizing on equal opportunities and the Egyptian national constitutional declaration issued in March 2011. Each political group should take-part in the constitutional assembly in order to have the constitution that reflects the points of view of the majority. Abu Seada confirmed that the roundtable discussion meeting will include representatives of all the political powers in order to face the parliamentary attempt for forming the National Constitutional Assembly.
