Big political upset in Egypt, as court nullifies last year’s polls
Latest reports say Egypt's supreme court has caused outrage by calling for the dissolution of the lower house of parliament.
According to the BBC, the court has ruled that last year's parliamentary election was unconstitutional, deciding that one third of the seats were "illegitimate".
The controversial decision comes days before Egypt's presidential election run-off, and the reports said, it has prompted the ruling military council to hold an emergency meeting.
The Muslim Brotherhood said it would send Egypt into a "dark tunnel".
Its Freedom and Justice party won 46% of the vote in the three-month poll and senior Brotherhood figure Essam Al-Arian warned that the decision would leave the incoming president without a parliament or a constitution.Tweet
