Egypt: Constituent Assembly Verdict Postponed Until 3 March

The Supreme Constitutional Court, headed by Counselor Maher el-Beheiry, delayed its verdict on the nullification of the Constituent Assembly until 3 March.

The court started its sessions at 10 am on Sunday.

The lawsuit was filed by Tharwat Bekheit, a lawyer, who asked to drop the law number 72 for the year 1980, which is related to forming the constitution's constituent assembly.
