Egypt Shura ruled illegal, but to stay on

Cairo, June 2, 2013

Egypt's supreme constitutional court ruled as illegal the law by which the upper house of parliament was elected but said that the chamber would not be dissolved until a new parliament is in place, judicial sources said.
The ruling, made on Sunday, said the upper house, or Shura Council, would be dissolved once the new parliament is elected. 
A date has yet to be set for the elections. President Mohamed Mursi had said they could begin in October. - Reuters
