Egypt's Islamist-led constituent assembly has finalised a new constitution and will send it to the president for him to ratify and put to a popular referendum.
Hossam el-Gheriyani, head of the assembly, said:
We have finished working on Egypt's constitution. We will call the president today at a reasonable hour to inform him that the assembly has finished its task and the project of the constitution is completed.
El-Gheriyani added that the next step would be preparing for the referendum which the president will call for.
