Egypt parliamentary polls to be held this year

Cairo: Egypt's parliamentary elections will be held before the end of 2015, Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi told a Spanish newspaper in an interview that was published on Wednesday.

The Egyptian president told El Mundo that the polls were due to be held in March but the constitutional appeals against the newly-drafted election law delayed the process, Xinhua news agency reported.

"The state is determined to hold the parliamentary elections to complete Egypt's democratic institutions," Sisi added.

In early March, Egypt's Administrative Court ordered the delay of the parliamentary elections after the Supreme Constitutional Court ruled parts of the electoral laws, related to division of constituencies as "unconstitutional."

Egypt's parliamentary polls, the first since the ouster of former president Mohamed Morsi by the military in July 2013, were supposed to kick off on March 21 until May 7.
