Prominent Egyptian law professor Hossam Eissa has said that Article 28 of the constitutional declaration issued in March of last year following a national referendum on constitutional amendments conflicted with another article – Article 21 – included in the same declaration.

According to Eissa, Article 28 of the declaration, issued by Egypt’s ruling military council in the wake of last year’s revolution, states that election results announced by the Supreme Electoral Commission – tasked with supervising presidential elections – cannot be appealed. Yet Article 21 of the declaration, Eissa noted, states that no administrative decisions should be made impervious to appeal.

Eissa went on to say that Egypt’s ruling military council represented the only body with the authority to amend either article of the declaration. "The council introduced this article and the council has the authority to amend it,” he said.

The controversial declaration, issued on 30 March of last year, included articles approved for amendment in a 19 March, 2011 popular referendum, in addition to a handful of other articles added later by the ruling military council.
