Egypt’s National Salvation Front rejects Mansour’s decree


CAIRO: Egypt’s largest opposition coalition, the National Salvation Front (NSF), has rejected a constitutional decree issued by interim President Adli Mansour.

Egypt’s interim President Adli Mansour late on Monday adopted a temporary constitution outlining the president’s powers. The declaration also lays out a timetable for the transition, the period of which is to last around six months until a presidential election is held.

In a statement issued on Tuesday, the NSF announced “its rejection of the constitutional decree,” adding that it was not consulted.

The Muslim Brotherhood and the opposition group Tamarod (Arabic for rebellion) – which was behind the demonstrations against ousted President Mohamed Morsi in the recent weeks – have also rejected the decree.

Tamarod has rejected the decree because, it argues, the order lays the ground for the formation of an autocracy.
