Egypt's parliament will respect the ruling of the Supreme Constitutional Court on the amendments of the political rights law, also known as the political exclusion law, Saad Al-Katatni, Speaker of the People's Assembly, stated.
The parliament will not interfere in the rulings of the judiciary, Al-Katatni said during a conference at the parliament on Saturday.
Al-Katatni attributed the parliament's delay in passing the law to the fact that MPs did not realise the importance of passing it swiftly until they found figures from Mubarak's regime running for president.
The political exclusion law, if implemented, will ban Mubarak's last Prime Minister Ahmed Shafiq from running for president.
The constitutional court will look into the appeals on two laws related to parliamentary and presidential elections on Wednesday June 14.
