Morsi is pushing to pass constitution at any cost: April 6 leader

Ahram Online: Founder of the influential April 6 movement, Ahmed Maher, charges that President Mohamed Morsi is attempting to push an “illegitimate” constitution through at any price – and as soon as possible.

Maher posted on his official Facebook page late Sunday that although the executive branch uses the excuse that they are complying with the March 2011 constitutional declaration stipulations by insisting the referendum be held on 15 December, he argues that that declaration has already been breached several times.

Many opposition forces and activists have denounced the draft constitution as “illegitimate,” having been drawn up by a largely controversial Islamist constituent assembly, which saw fifteen – the majority of which were non-Islamist – of its 100 members withdraw.
