Egypt's ruling military council might dissolve Egypt's constitutional council, as tensions come to a head between the Islamist majority and those who feel it has too much power.

With the Islamists and other groups, such as the Copts and liberals, at an impasse, the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces might use its executive powers to appoint a new constitutional council.

This would leave the future of Egypt's new democracy, and the decision over who will draft its new constitution, in an uncertain state.
