  • PA reconvenes for 15 minutes

    Egypt's PA reconvened briefly Tuesday in the absence of most liberal MPs.

    BY HEBA HESHAM Cairo: Within 15 minutes of convening a controversial parliamentary session, PA Speaker Saad El-Katatny adjourned following a decision to refer a Supreme Constitutional Court’s (SCC) ruling dissolving parliament to the Cassation Court for a final verdict on the status of the legislative body.The election law regulating last year’s parliamentary elections was deemed unconstitutional by the SCC last month and the military council dissolved the parliament accordingly. On Sunday, President Mohamed Morsi reversed the military decision and called on the parliament to reconvene until early elections within 60 days of the approval of the new constitution in a…

    A toothless president?

    BY DALIA RABIE Cairo: Somewhere between casting the ballots and announcing a winner, the incoming president’s authorities were outlined through a constitutional declaration issued by the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces. Late Sunday, SCAF published an addendum to the constitutional declaration complementing the one issued on March 30, 2011, arguably stripping the president of basic authorities, rendering him practically powerless. As SCAF broadened its powers, it chipped away at the authorities the elected president was expected to assume. In the face of criticism, SCAF member General Mohamed Al-Asaar assured in a press conference Monday that the elected president will…

    BY SARAH EL SIRGANY and RANIA AL MALKY Cairo: It was hyped up as a confrontation between military-led state institutions and election legitimacy, but the anticlimactic arrival of a handful of members of the recently dissolved parliament on Tuesday revealed that no one had confrontation in mind except some enthusiastic protesters. On Monday night, an official at the Freedom and Justice Party, whose MPs constitute the bigger part of the Islamist majority, said that MPs will march to parliament on Tuesday to attend the session as scheduled. The same official, Yasser Ali, was vague about the prospect of confrontation. The…

    SCAF vs. PA in final showdown

    Protesters face barbed wire and military police outside the SCC on Thursday.

    BY RANIA AL MALKY Cairo: The political atmosphere in Egypt has reached a fever pitch, hours before an anticipated amendment to the interim constitution is to be issued by the ruling army council (SCAF), according to state media. As a dwindling number of voters cast their vote in the runoff to the presidential election, which pits Mubarak-era prime minister Ahmed Shafik against the Muslim Brotherhood candidate Mohamed Morsi, a showdown between the Islamist dominated People’s Assembly and SCAF is set to culminate in a complementary constitutional decree that would define the powers of the president and give SCAF legislative authority….

    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…
