The Supreme Committee for supervising the constitution referendum, which is slated for 15 December, has been formed, a source told Al-Ahram Arabic news website on Tuesday.

Judge Samir Abou El-Maati, head of Cairo’s Appeal Court, will be in charge of the council, added the source who was not named.

The voting of the national charter will take place from 8-11 December for Egyptian expats.

While many judges remain on strike, announcing that they would not oversee the referendum, Al-Jazeera television reported that the Supreme Judiciary Council has agreed to delegate Judges and members of the prosecution to assume that responsibility.
