Egypt Limits Presidential Terms

As protests continue to rage throughout Egypt in response to President Morsi’s power grab, the assembly tasked with drafting the country’s new Constitution has voted to cap presidential terms at two four-year stints—quite a change for a country ruled by Hosni Mubarak for 30 years. The Constitution still must be put to a public referendum. The announcement is unlikely to quell protests in the country: Egypt’s opposition groups reaffirmed Thursday that they will continue demonstrating against the president.
