There's alarm in Egypt over proposed changes to the constitution.

A parliamentary panel has approved a 6-year term for the President. It also allows the 64-year-old leader to run for a third and fourth term.

The amendments will be put to vote in Parliament later this month. This will be followed by a national referendum.

If the amendments become law, they could allow President Abdel Fattah el Sisi to stay in office until 2034 -- that's well after the official end of his second term in 2022.

So, is Egypt heading for a one-party rule?
