National Accord Conference: Abolish military’s role of protecting president

The National Accord Conference on Thursday presented its recommendations to the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF), most significant of which is a proposal to abolish the military’s role in protecting the president, as was stipulated in the previous constitution, and changing its role to that of protecting the people.

The conference also recommended that the armed forces take part in the development of the country, an idea borrowed from the Chinese constitution; the interior minister report directly to parliament; the interior ministry’s name be changed to the Ministry of Internal Affairs; and the president should not head the Egyptian police forces.
