Egyptian military appointed judges to amend constitution

On February 15, 2011, the Egyptian Supreme Council of the Armed Forces assembled a committee of judges and politicians to oversee the process of amending the Egyptian constitution. Egypt experienced revolutionary changes during the Arab Spring protests in early 2011, resulting in the ouster of Hosni Mubarak. The aftermath of the revolution has included a lift of the ban on the Muslim Brotherhood and the election of Brotherhood candidate Mohammed Morsi to the presidency. The amended constitution has received virulent criticism in Egypt and abroad for granting Morsi complete executive and legislative power.
