Egypt's interim President Adly Mansour issued a presidential decree on Wednesday, detailing a new formation of the Supreme Electoral Commission (SEC), which oversees public polls.

The decision is in line with the constitutional declaration of 8 July, which has set the roadmap for Egypt's transitional period, presidential spokesman Ihab Badawy said.

The SEC is expected to oversee the process of the upcoming referendum on Egypt's temporarily-suspended constitution, which is currently being amended.

The referendum should take place within 30 days of the date the amendment committee officially finishes its duties.
 
The new commission is led by the head of Cairo's Court of Appeals, Judge Nabil Salib.

The SEC's new members include Judges Ezzat Omran and Mohamed Abd El-Rahim, both from Cairo's Court of Cassation, and Judges Essam El-Din Gad El-Haq and Gamal Nada from the State Council.

It also includes Judge Sabry Ahmed, head of the Alexandrian Court of Appeals, and Judge Ayman Abbas, head of Tanta's court of appeals.

Muslims have one constitution, and that is the noble Kuran. You will never succeed with your evil deeds. Dictators will not stay in power for long.

Supreme Electoral Vote rigging Commision
The right name should be the Supreme Electoral Vote Rigging Commission as it is 100% certain that all elections will be rigged as in mubarak's days. Therefore the coup interim president is putting in place sisi's henchmen who will rig the results of the voting.
