CAIRO, July 20 (Xinhua) -- Egyptian interim President Adli Mansour issued a decree Saturday to form a legal committee to amend the country's constitution, state-run Al-Aharm news website reported.
The decree also appoints Counselor Ali Awad Saleh, the president's constitutional adviser, as coordinator of the committee.
The 10-member constitution-amending panel is scheduled to start working on Sunday at the headquarters of the dismantled Shura Council (the upper house), according to the decree.
Saleh said the panel does not have a chairman and all colleagues will work together in full cooperation.
Amending the constitution is part of the roadmap announced by the military and approved by political forces and religious leaders for the future of Egypt following the ouster of Islamist- oriented President Mohamed Morsi earlier this month.
