Shiites demand representation in constitution amendment committee

Sayed T. Al Hashimi, Shiite leader, criticized not giving the Shiites any representation in the 50-member committee to amend the 2012 constitution.

He said that Shiites have presented many sacrifices for Egypt, including martyrs, under the Muslim Brotherhood rule, and should participate in drafting the constitution of their beloved country.
 
Al Hashimi also denounced giving seats to the ultra conservative party, al-Nour, from which many terrorist groups have descended.
