Power Struggle Ensues in Wake of Egypt Elections

Egyptian demonstrators are expected to gather in Cairo's Tahrir Square Tuesday to protest military control in the wake of presidential elections there. A winner won't be officially declared until Thursday, but a power struggle over the drafting of a new constitution is already underway.

Egypt's Supreme Council of the Armed Forces wants a constitution that will guarantee its power and autonomy in the country. It also wants a broad cross section of the society to write it.

How will Christians and other minorities fare?

Professor Gabriel Sawma, a Middle East constitutional law expert at Fairleigh Dickson University, said they'll be treated about the same if the army maintains dominance.

He said that won't be the case if the Muslim Brotherhood writes the constitution.

"You have to remember every single constitution in the Middle East, with the exception of Lebanon and Turkey, every one of them has a provision that says Islamic Sharia is the law of the land," Sawma told CBN News.

"And if the direction goes toward the Muslim Brotherhood, then you are talking about a country that is going to be 100 percent Islamic and that would have a grave effect on the minorities, especially the Christians, the Coptic community, as well as the Muslim women in general," he said.

A showdown between Islamists and the army over the writing of the constitution may be imminent.
