    Egypt high court rules legislative bodies were illegally elected

    Egypts supreme constitutional court ruled as illegal the law by which the upper house of parliament was elected but said that the chamber would not be dissolved until a new parliament is in place, judicial sources said.

    Egypt's highest court, the Supreme Constitutional Court (SCC), on Sunday held that the country's legislature and constitutional panel were illegally elected. While the constitutional panel has already dissolved, the legislature's upper house, the Shura Council, will not be dissolved until the parliament's lower chamber is elected later this year or in early 2014. The legislature's lower chamber will be dissolved in June. Although the Shura Council is traditionally a consultative part of legislation, these recent changes will force  it to become more actively engaged in the country's legislation.

    This ruling is the latest episode stemming from the Egypt Revolution  in 2011. Last month Egypt's Supreme Constitutional Court found provisions of the nation's revised parliament and election law invalid under the Egyptian constitution. In April several Egyptian opposition groups filed a lawsuit demanding the government open up the draft budget for public debate. Also in April Egypt's Justice Minister Ahmed Mekki resigned in response to both supporters and opponents calling for his resignation.
