of these terms.
Several Egyptian human rights groups have spoken out against the decision.
The changes, first proposed earlier this month,
will now be drafted into legislation and put to another parliamentary
vote. If approved again, Egypt will then hold a referendum.
Article 140 of Egypt's constitution, approved in a referendum in
2014, currently states that the president serves four-year terms and may
only be re-elected once. But under proposed changes, the leader would be allowed to stay in power until 2034.
