FJP boycotts meeting with SCAF, rejects amendment to constitutional declaration

The Freedom and Justice Party

, the political arm of the Muslim Brotherhood, said that it will boycott a meeting between the military council and political powers on Tuesday. The meeting will address the Advisory Council’s proposed supplementary Constitutional Declaration, including an amendment to Article 60 of the current Constitutional Declaration, and the formation of the Constituent Assembly.

On its Facebook page, the party called upon all Egyptians to take part in a million-man protest for the "protection of the revolution" to make sure that the revolution goes on and achieves its goals.

The FJP reiterated its rejection of any constitutional amendments, confirming that it will continue to consult with other political parties and powers in a bid to reach a consensus on the Constituent Assembly to draft Egypt's new constitution.
