A timetable for constitutional reform
If you've been following this blog for a few days, you will have noticed that the debate in Egypt is centering on the question of how to proceed with either a new constitution or adapting the current constitution to the circumstances. We've highlighted the proposal by Bahgat and Abdelaty, the statement by a group of establishment figures, and indeed the debate about having multiple vice-presidents to handle a transition. And of course, at the heart and soul of the protest movement in Tahrir, the continuing non-negotiable demand of Mubarak's removal.
I just received a proposal by the Arab Center for the Independence of the Judiciary and Legal Profession, a respected local NGO, suggesting a timetable for constitutional reform. They are here in English and Arabic word files (I'd paste them but the formatting does not work well on the blog.)
