President Mohamed Morsi issued a new Constitutional Declaration on Sunday granting the elected president all the authorities listed in Article 56 of the 30 March 2011 Constitutional Declaration.

The powers Morsi enjoys under this declaration include full executive and legislative authority, along with the power to set all public policies in Egypt and sign international treaties.

The declaration further gives Morsi the right to draw up a new Constituent Assembly mandated with drafting a new Egyptian constitution should any future developments prevent the current assembly from carrying out its responsibilities.
