Egypt’s Supreme Military Council, SCAF has issued a series of amendments to its own Constitutional Declaration that effectively limit the powers of the country’s incoming president, and many would argue, cement the authority of the army generals in this post-Mubarak era.

SCAF also seeks to control the drafting of Egypt’s new consitution.

The once all-powerful position of president has been made largely ceremonial and the move to civilian rule has been put on hold in the interests of what the military calls “national stability”.
