Top Egyptian court overturns President Morsi's decree reinstating parliament
Cairo, July 11 (ANI): A top Egyptian court has reportedly frozen a decree issued by new President Mohamed Morsi reinstating the Islamist-led parliament.
The Supreme Court's decision is likely to escalate a crisis that has raged since Morsi issued the decree just eight days after taking office.
Earlier, the court had ruled that certain articles in the law governing parliamentary elections were invalid, annulling the lower house of Parliament.
The powerful Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF), which ruled after Hosni Mubarak was ousted last year, then dissolved the house.
According to The Telegraph, neither side appears to have enough power to displace the other, with the armed force's military strength equalled by the Muslim Brotherhood's formidable organisational ability to harness the support of the streets.
Observers believe that the result is an enforced d?tente while each sides considers its options.
"The army will not use its power against the president or undertake a military coup and the president will not use his power against the [military council]" the paper quoted Hasan Nafaa, a political analyst, as saying. (ANI)
