During last month’s 21st Century U.S. – Egypt Strategic Relations Conference ASP’s Paul Hamill sat down with H.E. Amr Moussa, the elected president of the committee of 50 responsible for drafting a new constitution in Egypt.
The committee of 50 represented all segments of Egyptian society that authored the new constitution, which was subsequently approved in a referendum in January 2014.
According to Moussa, this new constitution will form the basis of the new political life and is the start of a very important roadmap that will guide Egypt towards stability.
“All of us should follow the steps established by the new constitution…this is our guide to the new Egypt.”
Egyptians feel that the failure of previous governments must be reversed and replaced with solid management based on the principles established in the constitution, and Moussa expressed a sense of optimism for this and the future of Egypt, citing the upcoming presidential and parliamentary elections as the next vital steps along Egypt’s roadmap to success.
