An Egyptian panel, formed by President Hosni Mubarak to pilot constitutional changes in the face of unprecedented protests, has agreed to propose six amendments, the state MENA agency reported. The commission has agreed to look into changes to Article 76, which restricts who can stand for the presidency, and Article 77, which removed limits on how long a president can stay in office, helping the veteran incumbent to his now 30 years in office. The panel made no mention of the decades-old state of emergency, which human rights watchdogs say makes a mockery of supposed freedoms of expression and assembly, and which Washington says should immediately be lifted.
