CAIRO: An article dividing constituencies of the parliamentary elections was ruled unconstitutional by a top Egyptian court Sunday.
Information on whether the elections scheduled mid-March would be postponed is yet to be revealed.
Four cases had been filed before the Constitutional Court calling for the cancellation of elections of the parliament, on the grounds that some articles were illegal. The law on exercising political rights was one of the codes challenged, but the court rejected the case Sunday.
The Cabinet approved the parliamentary elections law in December.
Egypt’s 2012 parliament was dissolved in about six months after installment by the Constitutional Court, which ruled it had been based on unconstitutional elections.
