Security without tyranny - development without corruption - democracy without exclusion
After decades of dictatorship and domination of what is known as economic, intellectual, political and military elites, the will of the Egyptian people became was reflected clearly in the revolution of January 25 at the break of the structure of the corrupt regime and the establishment of a State that reflects its will and protects its reconciliation, individuals and groups, and our belief in the need to unite all the Egyptian people to build modern Egypt, that is currently being destroyed in accordance with a clear and specific scheme since the coup of the third of July 2013. the Egyptian Revolutionary Council have admited out this document and approved for discussion by the masses of the people in order to achieve consensus around it, and the people achieve their aspirations of bread, freedom, social justice and human dignity which we came out for on January 25th, 2011, and sacrificed and still does sacrifice for until it is achieved.
This project has three main axes:
The first axis: the Bill of Rights and the basic principles for the future Egypt
This axis represents the desired end of our Revolutionary work, and expresses it in a set of fixed principles in recognition of rights and freedoms. These rights and freedoms represent the main pillars of the final status, which we aspire for in the future under the umbrella of the Constitution which protect and realize it. These pillars are based on:1) the Egyptian people as the source of authority, 2) The armed forces do not intervene in political affairs. 3) The citizens are equal before the law in public rights and duties without discrimination in the exercise of these rights 4) The rights and freedoms does not accept the disruption and detraction, 5) Every worker has the right wage provides a minimum standard of dignity living. 6) The criminalization of the use of any devices and security institutions of physical or psychological torture against citizens and these crimes should not be forgotten with the passing of time, and 7) The inadmissibility of the establishment of exceptional courts under any name.
The second axis: the Charter of honor, of labor between the co-operators of the Revolution
The Egyptian Revolutionary Council, ERC, is working hard to:1) Unite the forces of the Egyptian revolution under one umbrella to achieve the objectives of the revolution of January 25, 2) Face corruption and authoritarianism and military rule. These ERC works are according to the principles of alignment of Egyptian citizens, revolutionary and national forces at home and abroad under the banner of the principles of the revolution of January 25, 2011, with the national forces’ commitment to drop the military coup and all the forces of the anti-revolution, and what resulted in the return of authoritarian military regime and to seek the full rights of the martyrs and the wounded and detainees. That the national forces undertake to document the lessons learned and self-assessment and review since the revolution, and to make every effort to achieve societal reconciliation, and respect for political, cultural and religious diversity in Egypt, and to refuse the exclusion or marginalization of any component of the forces of the revolution. And a pledge to build a development model that will lead to lack of concentration, and the liberalization of the national decision of dependency in all its forms, and the re-evaluation of all agreements and contracts, and international treaties signed by the authority of the military coup.
The third axis: the vision and principles of the transitional period
This vision constitutes the road towards building a fair democratic state, and to ensure the fundamental rights and freedoms for all Egyptian people, and to reach that, society needs for a participatory transitional period, without the monopoly of any faction in power or political decision-making, and this is for a sufficient period of time to fix what the coup spoiled as well as the corruption of years of dictatorship, including the restoration of the relationship between the spectra and categories of the Egyptian people on the basis of tolerance and respect for others and non-discrimination, and the rebuilding of state institutions to carry out its established functions, and reforming the economy to get it out of the state of deterioration that was inflicted upon it by the repressed and corrupt authority, by rationalization of management and confronting the financial and administrative corruption, and restoring the rights of the Egyptian people and its looted wealth at home and abroad.
This is done through returning to the legitimacy represented in the first civilian president democratically elected by the people, president Dr. Mohamed Morsi, and determining the relationship between all state institutions during that stage by a referendum of the people on a constitutional declaration defining the features of this stage, with the return of the armed forces to their barracks and distancing itself from political work. And a body should be created of laws and legislatures and politicians known for their competence and integrity to study the necessary amendments in the Constitution of 2012 and to present it for community dialogue. And the naming of a transitional government known for their fair and efficient personnel, and the development of a transitional program for economic and social development that represents the Egyptian revolution to ensure the rights of the poor and marginalized groups and an end to social injustice. With the development of the necessary rules to consolidate the existing values of justice for community reconciliation and justly punished, and the issuance of a comprehensive law to achieve justice and rebuild all state institutions on a sound footing, restructuring the police, the army, the judiciary, prosecutors and diplomatic missions, while ensuring the independence of the authorities and the separation between them.
