Ahram Online, Saturday 24 Mar 2012

Independent MP Mostafa Bakri is commissioned to head the general committee that will supervise elections to the Constituent Assembly slated to write Egypt's new constitution

Parliament Speaker Mohamed Saad El-Katatni has announced that independent MP Mostafa Bakri is to head the general committee supervising voting for the Constituent Assembly that will draft Egypt's new constitution.

MPs Nagi El-Shehabi and Nasser Abbas from El-Gil Party and the Muslim Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party are also on the committee.

The committee was announced during Saturday's joint session of parliament.

The appointment of Bakri stirred up controversy on social media sites, given his antagonistic posture towards the revolution and what many believe is his past role as a phony opposition figure during the Mubarak era.
