Commenting article: Egypt Ready with Draft Constitution, Keeps Sharia as Legislation Source

Egypt's Islamist-led constitutional commission voted to approve the country's draft constitution on Friday.

"The constitutional commission to draft the main legislative document of the country has unanimously approved all provisions of the draft constitution," commission head Hossam el-Gheriyani said, as cited by RIA Novisti.

Representatives of secular parties and Coptic Christians walked out of the debate in the Islamist dominated commission, consisting of 100 delegates, to show their disagreement with the newly-proposed constitution.
