Egypt: Nation's Constitutional Court to Resume Sessions On Jan 15

Egypt's Supreme Constitutional Court (SCC) decided on Sunday 30/12/2012 to resume its sessions as of January 15 after it has suspended work since December 1.

The Court's General Assembly convened yesterday under its president Maher el-Beheiry and made the decision, said SCC's vice president and spokesman Maher Sami.

The court will examine cases that it should have looked into during a December 2 session and those that were set to be probed during a January 13 session, Beheiry said.

Those include the cases connected with the Shura Council elections and the constituent assembly membership election criteria, he said.
