(MENAFN - Qatar News Agency) The controversial edict issued by Egypt's President Mohammad Morsi - which spurred vigorous, sometimes violent protests by those calling it a dictatorial power grab - "will fall immediately" if voters approve a new constitution later this month, Egyptian Prime Minister Hesham Qandil said.

Echoing President Morsi and other government officials, the Prime Minister said in an interview with the (CNN) that the November 21 decree that made Morsi's past and future decisions immune to judicial oversight was issued "to protect the process of building the democratic institutions."

Regardless, Qandil said that it should be a moot point after December 15, when Egyptians will approve or reject a new constitution in a nationwide referendum.

"We're talking about one hour (and) 12 days until this declaration drops," Qandil said. "So I don't think people should worry about the declaration. We should now worry about what is coming, which is the constitution."
