Morsi's Concession Not Enough

Sun, December 9, 2012

Although Egypt's President Morsi relented on Saturday by rescinding his power grab of judicial as well as executive control over Egypt, the controversial vote on Egypt's constitution remains in place for December 15.

Opponents are not satisfied with with Morsi's gestures, saying that the constitution itself is a sham in that non-Islamists members of the draft committee were pushed out. They also fear corruption by the Muslim Brotherhood government during the voting process.

In addition, Morsi has said that the powers that he had "rescinded" are only effective from the present; any decision he made after the power grab until now remain in place.
