Egypt's interim President Adly Mansour said Tuesday that a revised constitution will be put to a public referendum within weeks.

"Egypt is moving steadily toward implementation the roadmap for future," Mansour said in a speech to an Arab-African summit, which opened in Kuwait on Tuesday.

The military has unveiled a roadmap for Egypt's transition following the ouster of elected president Mohamed Morsi in July.

The roadmap includes amending the 2012 constitution – was which approved in a public referendum – and parliamentary and presidential elections.

A 50-member panel amending the constitution is set to vote on the final draft of the charter next week.
