A proposal to amend a host of constitutional articles — including presidential term limits — has been submitted to Parliament, Ali Abdel Aal, the legislature’s speaker, announced on Sunday during a general assembly meeting.

The proposal was submitted by head of the state-allied Alliance to Support Egypt coalition MP Abdel Hady al-Qasabi and signed by one fifth of members of the House of Representatives.
