Newscast Media CAIRO, Egypt The Muslim Brotherhood's candidate Muhammed Morsi may have won the presidency, but since the current constitution was suspended by SCAF and parliament dissolved, when a new constitution is drafted by SCAF and new parliamentary elections take place, the current president will not remain in officehis stay in office will be short the head of SCAF's advisory said.

"The upcoming president will occupy the office for a short period of time, whether or not he agrees. His office term will be short despite the huge efforts exerted in the election campaign. This is simply because a new constitution will be drafted, followed by new parliamentary elections to take on the legislative power and therefore it is not possible in any event for the president to remain in office after a new constitution comes to life," said Sameh Ashour.
