The Egyptian army dissolved the country’s parliament on February 13, just two days after it took over power from President Hosni Mubarak who had resigned earlier.

The military rulers also suspended the constitution and established a committee for drafting a new constitution for the country.

The army announced on national TV that it would run the country about six months or until presidential and parliamentary elections can be held.

The military rulers also pledged to transfer power in a peaceful manner.

They decided to establish a committee to amend the current constitution and draw up regulations for a popular referendum to endorse the amendments./.
