PRESS RELEASE | Christians Protest Islamic Constitution in Egypt

Washington, D.C. (July 30, 2012) – International Christian Concern (ICC) has learned that hundreds of Christians will protest outside Egypt’s constitutional court today demanding the dissolution of an Islamist-dominated assembly tasked with writing the country’s new constitution. The assembly, appointed by a parliament that was dissolved by the military on June 14, has proposed a constitution that will adhere to the “principles of Islamic Sharia [as] the main source for legislation.”

 

On July 30, Egypt’s Supreme Administrative Court (SAC) is expected to decide whether or not the Constituent Assembly, a body tasked with drafting Egypt's new constitution, is legal. The current 100-member assembly is led by the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamist groups. If the court dissolves the assembly, the military will be granted authority to create a new panel to write the document, making it less likely that Egypt’s constitution will be centered on Islamic law.
