Via Egypt Independent:

The Constituent Assembly tasked with drafting the new constitution has agreed to preserve Article 2 of the 1971 Constitution without amendment, and that parliamentary elections would be held within 60 days of approval of the new constitution. The assembly also agreed on how amendments can be made to the constitution in the future.

Article 2 of the 1971 Constitution states that the principles of Sharia are the main source of legislation. The word “principles” has been interpreted in a newly introduced article as meaning the basics of the Sharia jurisprudence.

They also agreed that Christians and Jews may follow their own religious protocols in matters of personal status, and choose their spiritual leaders freely.

Also, the assembly agreed that Al-Azhar should be independent.
