Guards allowed members to enter parliament on Monday morning after receiving permission from Egypt's President Mohamed Mursi to reconvene, the Middle East News Agency reported.
Mursi decided on Sunday to halt Field Marshal Mohamed Hussein Tantawi's decision to dissolve the elected Islamist-led People's Assembly (parliament's lower house). Tantawi's decision had come in light of the Supreme Constitutional Court's ruling that the parliamentary elections law was unconstitutional.
People's Assembly speaker, Saad al-Katatni, is expected to arrive at parliament later today, the state's agency reported.
Katatni welcomed Mursi's decision yesterday, stating that the assembly will perform its legislative and supervising duties as soon as it reconvenes.
