After Mubarak, Egypt fixes president's term at 8 years

Future presidents of Egypt will only be allowed to stay in office for eight years according to constitutional amendments that will open up competition for the position held for three decades by ousted leader Hosni Mubarak.
The proposed amendments outlined by a judicial panel appointed by Egypt's ruling military council will be put to a referendum ahead of parliamentary and presidential elections that will hand power back to a civilian government.
Mubarak was serving in his fifth, six-year term when he was toppled on Feb 11, forced from office by a mass uprising driven in large part by demands for reform to put an end to the one-man rule.
