Egypt Prez calls for forming commission to amend constitution
Beijing: Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi called on Wednesday for forming an independent commission to amend the constitution, with the participation of all political forces and parties.
Morsi said so during a televised speech, only days before the planned massive protests against him to be held on June 30 which marks the first anniversary of his rule.
The President has urged the interior minister to form a specialized unit to face the thugs` acts and the criminals who terrorize the citizens.
Ahead of the June 30 protests which seek to oust Morsi and press for an early election, the embattled president said the country`s youths are marginalized and their efforts could be used in the political arena, in forms of parties.
To placate the protesters, mainly the young ones, Morsi assigned all ministers and governors to have deputies younger than 40 years old.
In the Wednesday speech, the president also called for forming a higher commission in charge of national reconciliation.
