Egypt: Interim Leader Sets Timetable to Fresh Elections

The military-backed interim leader of Egypt Adly Mansour on late Monday set out a six-month timetable for revising the country’s constitution and holding fresh elections amid continuing unrest in the country.

Mr. Adly Mansour's roadmap will see changes made to the Islamist-drafted constitution and a referendum, which would pave way for elections early next year.

According to the roadmap, a panel to amend the constitution would be formed within 15 days. Changes made to the constitution would then be subject to referendum within four months of the panel’s work which will lead to parliamentary elections and then a presidential election will be held once the new parliament is assembled.

Egypt has been in a state of turmoil since its first freely elected leader Mr Morsi, an Islamist was removed from office by the army last week after mass protests.
