Egypt's Morsi grants himself far-reaching power

Published: 11.22.12, 18:47 / Israel News

Egypt's president has issued constitutional amendments granting himself far-reaching powers and ordering the retrial of leaders of Hosni Mubarak's regime for the killing of protesters in last year's uprising.

 

Mohammed Morsi also decreed immunity for the panel drafting a new constitution from any possible court decisions to dissolve it. He granted the same protection to the upper chamber of parliament. Both bodies are dominated by Morsi's Islamist allies. (AP)
