The legal committee of the Muslim Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) is working on a draft law to amend the 1979 peace treaty with Israel, FJP member Osama Suleiman was quoted by Egypt Independent as saying Tuesday.

According to the report, the draft law intends to amend the accords so the Egyptian army can gain full control over the Sinai Peninsula.

"We're waiting for the return of parliament to propose the treaty amendment, as the president cannot amend it while the legislative authority is absent," Suleiman reportedly said of the proposed law.

He also confirmed the draft would first be sent to Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi for his review.
