The head of council advising SCAF says 'new president is a transitional one for few months only'
Sameh Ashour, the head of council advising SCAF, told Al Jazeera: "The upcoming president will occupy the office for a short period of time, weather or not he agrees. His office term will be short despite the huge efforts exerted in the election campaigns.
"This is simply because a new constitution will be drafted, followed by new parliamentary elections to take on the legislative power; and therefore it is not possible in any event for the president to remain in office after a new constitution comes to the light."
