Egyptian President Adly Mansour on 1 September 2013 approved a 50 member panel to amend the suspended 2012 Constitution. The panel is comprised of representatives from among the jurists, experts, academicians, armed forces, journalists, writers, labour unions, public figures, and the political parties among others. Islamists would be represented by the Al Nour party.

The panel is tasked with carrying out amendments in the 2012 Constitution which was prepared by the Islamist regime under Mohamed Mursi. A group of 10 eminent legal experts has already identified areas for amendment and prepared the draft.

The 50-member panel will give final shape to the Constitution within 60 days, keeping in mind the interests of various sections of Egyptian society.
