It will also supervise the referendum over the amended constitution after 30 days of its submission by a 50-member panel to the president. This panel, presided by Amr Moussa, is tasked with amending Egypt's constitution.

The country, which has traditionally played a balancing role in the volatile west Asian region, has been going through a dark phase. In 2011, Egypt saw the fall of a long dictatorial rule and was hoping to make a transition towards democracy but the honeymoon period didn't last much long and in mid-2013, the elected president, Mohammed Morsi, was ousted by the army, pushing the country towards the abyss.
