SCAF outlines its explicit terms leaving the new president with limited powers.
Egyptians are waking up to another reality, The Supreme Council of the Armed Forces [SCAF], has made a last minute power grab leaving the new incoming president with very limited powers. On Sunday they made their terms explicit. The army says it will be its own boss. The new President will not be commander in chief.
SCAF has given itself control over the budget and who writes the permanent constitution, And in the absence of a sitting parliament, the military council will retain legislative power. That means for now, SCAF can bring in any new laws it likes.
