#EGYPT: Parliament Approves Amendment Allowing Another 10 Years For President

[world politics news]

Egypt's parliament has approved constitutional amendments that would allow President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi to stay in power until 2030. He is due to step down in 2022, when his second four-year term ends.

But the amendments, which must be put to a referendum within 30 days, would lengthen his current term to six years and allow him to stand for one more. They would also give al-Sisi more power over the judiciary and further enshrine the military's role in politics.
