Court ruling jeopardises Egypt parliamentary elections


EGYPT’S Supreme Court has ruled part of an election law unconstitutional, possibly delaying parliamentary polls which begin this month.

The ruling referred to sections of the law on division of electoral districts.

Egypt has been without its main parliament chamber since 2012 when it was dissolved by a court ruling.

The elections are the final step of a transitional roadmap outlined by the military in July 2013 after the overthrow of President Mohammed Morsi.

They are scheduled to be held in two stages, on 22-23 March and 26-27 April.

Former army chief Abdul Fattah al-Sisi was elected president in May 2014.
