Egypt's Interim President Adly Mansour issued a presidential decree on Saturday forming a legal committee to amend the frozen 2012 constitution.
According to the decree, Judge Ali Awad Saleh, the presidency's constitutional advisor, will be the committee's rapporteur.
The committee is set to begin work on Sunday at the Shura Council headquarters. The Shura Council is Egypt's upper house of parliament, which was dissolved shortly after Mansour was sworn in.
In addition, the decree says that a "general technical secretariat" will be formed to support the committee in its mission.
On 8 July, Mansour issued a constitutional declaration outlining a transitional roadmap to follow the army's removal of president Mohamed Morsi on 3 July amid mass nationwide protests against him. The 2012 constitution was suspended on 3 July as part of the army-backed roadmap.
According to the declaration, the committee will be given one month to finalise the constitutional amendments.
The committee consists of two High Constitutional Court members, two judges, two members of State Council, and four constitutional law professors from Egyptian universities.
Committee members were chosen by their respective judicial bodies, while Egypt's Supreme Council of Universities assigned the constitutional law professors.
The constitutional amendment committee will refer amendments to another committee formed of 50 members representing the full spectrum of Egyptian society
Egypt's non-Islamist political forces repeatedly argued that the suspended constitution did not represent all Egyptians, blaming the majority Islamist members of the outgoing constituent assembly for ignoring their recommendations.
