The Egyptian Constitutional Front calls upon the head of the National Constitutional Assembly to freeze its activities

November 6th, 2012 by Editor

On November 6, 2012, the Egyptian Constitutional Front sent an official letter to the head of the National Constitutional Assembly, judge Hossam Al Ghriani, to freeze its activities until having the Supreme Constitutional Court’s decision on article no. 1 of law no. 79, year 2012.

On October 23, 2012, the administrative court referred the lawsuits calling for dissolving the National Constitutional Assembly to the Supreme Constitutional Court to decide on constitutionality of article no. 1 of law no. 79, year 2012, known as the Law of the National Constitutional Assembly Standards.

Mr. Hafez Abu Seada, the head of the Egyptian Organization for Human Rights, confirmed that the activities of the assembly must be frozen. Resuming its activities is illegal and causes constitutional problems that cannot be undone. The law of the assembly and its internal rules might be unconstitutional. So, resuming the activities of the assembly and producing the final draft of the constitution before the Supreme Constitutional Court’s decision will definitely lead to constitutional disorders.
