Uncertainty looms over Egypt presidential polls following court ruling
Cairo, May 10 (ANI): An Egyptian administrative court has ruled in favor of a lawsuit which suspended this month's presidential election in the country, a decision which left the nation's ruling military council bemused.
The court found that the Supreme Presidential Election Commission did not have the power to set a date for the election, which it scheduled for May 23-24 and only the military council could set the time.
According to the Los Angeles Times, the military council had initially granted the Election Commission the authority to schedule the poll.
However, hours before the judicial decision, military leader Field Marshal Mohamed Hussein Tantawi announced that voting would not be delayed.
The decision seemed to highlight the erratic nature of the country's politics ahead of its first freely contested presidential election, which indicated that Egypt, which last year helped to inspire uprisings across the Arab world, is still struggling to move beyond the legacy of deposed leader Hosni Mubarak.
