Egypt govt appeals against vote suspension
Cairo: Egyptian government led by Islamist President Mohammed Mursi has appealed a court ruling suspending the parliamentary elections that was scheduled to take place on April 22.
Egypt`s Supreme Administrative Court (SAC) has scheduled a hearing for the appeal on 17 March.
Last Wednesday, the Administrative Court ordered the cancellation of the elections which President Mursi had called for in February and said it had referred Egypt’s amended electoral law, under which the lower house polls are due to be held, to the Supreme Constitutional Court for review.
The Administrative Court`s ruling deepened Egypt`s political uncertainty at a time of social unrest and economic crisis, with the nation`s foreign currency reserves at critically low levels and the budget deficit soaring.
The hearing will combine the government`s appeal, submitted through Egyptian State Lawsuit Authority, with another already submitted by ex-MP Mohamed El-Omda, al Ahram newspaper reported.
