Egyptian court says one-third of parliament make-up unconstitutional

Thursday, June 14, 2012

CAIRO, June 14 (Xinhua) — Egypt’s Supreme Constitutional Court ruled on Thursday the unconstitutionality of some articles related to the parliament election law, which gave the right to party members to compete for independents seats, state TV said.

The ruling means one-third of the People’s Assembly (lower house of parliament) members would be disqualified.
