In this second installment of our new video interview series at I-CONnect, Mohamed Arafa discusses the new Egyptian Constitution.
The interview touches on the entrenchment of human rights in the new Constitution, the designation of Islam as the official religion, as well as whether the military constitutes an unofficial “fourth branch” of government.
