    BY MAI SHAMS EL-DIN Cairo – Egypt’s Supreme Constitutional Court (SCC) recently opined that the military and police have a constitutional right to vote, a ruling that sparked controversy over the possible politicization of both institutions already seen as having too much influence in politics. The ruling came as part of the SCC’s assessment of a reviewed version of the elections law by the Shoura Council, drafted in line with Egypt’s long-running tradition that bars army and police soldiers, conscripts and members of the security from voting while in service. The SCC deemed this part of the law as unconstitutional…

    Court allows Shafik to run

    Some protested the presidential bid of Shafik in front of the Constitutional Court.

    Cairo: In a landmark verdict, Egypt’s Supreme Constitutional Court (SCC) Thursday declared unconstitutional amendments to the political participation law that would have resulted in the exclusion of presidential candidate Ahmed Shafik. In the same highly anticipated session, the court upheld a previous lower court ruling that the law governing parliamentary elections was unconstitutional, hence annulling the legislative elections. The court case against the parliament law challenged four articles allowing political parties to field candidates to contest seats allocated to non-partisan individuals. According to initial news reports about the ramifications of the second ruling, this will result in the dissolution of…
