EGYPT: The Radical Islamist Muslim Brotherhood’s party has declared its candidate, Mohammed Morsi, had won the country’s first free presidential election, defeating Ahmed Shafik, ousted president Hosni Mubarak’s last prime minister.
As Egyptians waited for the results of the presidential election, the ruling military council issued new rules that made clear the real power remains with the army.
Hours earlier, the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF) issued a decree granting itself broad power over the future government, diminishing the authority of the president and seizing control of the process of writing a permanent constitution, The New York Times reported. READ MORE
Just like his partner in crime, brother Barack Hussein Obama, the new President, Mohamed Morsi, is moving his lips, so you know he’s lying.
Egyptian Army says, “Morsi will NOT be our Commander-in-Chief.”
The Supreme Council of the Armed Forces [SCAF], has made a last minute power grab leaving the new incoming president with very limited powers. The army says it will be its own boss. The new President will not be commander in chief. Scaf has given itself control over the budget and who writes the permanent constitution, AND And in the absence of a sitting parliament, the military council will retain legislative power. That means for now, Scaf can bring in any new laws it likes.
