Egypt to rewrite constitution

Egypt's military has initiated a 10-day plan to rewrite the constitution and return control to civilians, the New York Times reported.

After the reformations to the constitution are created, a referendum will be held about the plan within two months, CNN said.

The military council plans to give control back to the civilians in about six months.

One clause that restricted who can run for president will be removed from the constitution, according to the New York Times.

Military officials say they do not want to lead the country and that a civilian ruled Egypt is the best option, CNN reported.
