Egypt: Court Adjourns Ruling in Constitution Assembly to March 3

Egypt's constitutional court decided on Sunday to adjourn its verdict in the legality of the makeup of the assembly that wrote the new constitution to March 3.

The court heard the defense on January 15 and decided to issue its final verdict today.

The constitution was put to a referendum and approved at the end of last year despite outrage from opposition groups who believe the text does not represent all Egyptians.
