Egypt Parties to Meet Tantawi on Constitution Committee April 22

Egyptian lawmakers, political parties and the country’s military ruler will meet April 22 to discuss the composition of the committee charged with drafting a constitution, in a push to get the nation’s transition to civilian rule back on track, the state-run Middle East News Agency reported today.

The announcement came after more than a dozen heads of political parties met with Field Marshal Mohamed Hussein Tantawi about the constitution drafting committee following an administrative court ruling that effectively suspended the 100-person panel because of its membership.
