Egypt's military rulers move to resolve constituent assembly crisis


09:55, March 30, 2012

CAIRO, March 29 (Xinhua) -- Egypt's ruling military council on Thursday held a second meeting with leaders of nearly 20 political parties and two lawmakers in the latest efforts to resolve the political crisis triggered by the domination of Islamists in the constituent assembly.

Fourteen political parties, including Muslim Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party (FJP), Salafist's Nour party and al-Wafd party, agreed on three items to ease the tension, official news agency MENA reported.

Hussein Tantawi, head of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF), urged all political parties to work sincerely to draft the nation's constitution in order to represent the will of all segments of Egyptian society.

This was the second meeting that the SCAF had organized to solve the standoff over the past three days.

Tantawi expressed hopes to reach positive results and logic solutions to satisfy all the citizens with their different social classes and political affiliations.

The first item said the discussions intended to find an active representation for all political parties and movements, civil society and public figures in the constituent assembly to achieve balance in its membership.

Representatives of the parties asserted the documents of Al- Azhar and Democratic Parties' alliance will be a reference for the new constitution articles. They agree the new constitution should build a democratic and constitutional country based on citizenship and the sovereignty of the law.
