Legal battles overshadow Egypt election

2y ago


Egypt's Constitutional court dissolved parliament on Thursday. It said a third of successful candidates won illegitimately. The decision seemed to hand legislative power back to the military council SCAF, which has ruled the country since February last year. The military is meant to transfer power to the new president after this weekend's runoff.   But some are threatening to boycott the vote, as Rawya Rageh reports from Cairo.
