African Union likely to suspend Egypt
2013-07-05
The African Union is likely to suspend Egypt after what it called the "unconstitutional" removal of President Mohamed Mursi by the army, AU officials said on Thursday. The AU's Peace and Security Council (PSC) will discuss the Egyptian situation on Friday and, according to an AU source, is likely to implement the usual response to any interruption of constitutional rule by a member state, and suspend it.

The AU issued a statement saying said the organization's head, Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, "observes that the removal of ... Mursi was in violation of the provisions of the Egyptian Constitution and falls under the AU doctrine on unconstitutional changes of Government."

It said the PSC "will deliberate on the situation in Egypt and take the required decisions."
