Topic: Political crisis in Egypt
Egypt's governing Supreme Council of the Armed Forces on Wednesday announced a constitutional declaration that will act as the country's main set of laws during a transitional period.
This interim constitution will be in effect until a new head of state and a new government is elected.
No date has been set yet for presidential elections, but they are expected no later than December.
The Supreme Council repealed the old constitution on February 13, soon after President Hosni Mubarak was forced to step down by a popular uprising.
