University of Chicago law professor Tom Ginsburg has taken a careful look at Egypt’s draft constitution. He says there’s one big winner in the document: Egypt’s military.

“Military officers are pretty happy with the draft, and I can certainly see why,” Ginsburg says. “They didn’t have to publicly assert their red lines but they maintain many of the prerogatives of the (Hosni) Mubarak period.”
