Egypt parliament approves revamped election law

Cairo, April 12: Egypt's parliament approved a revised election law on Thursday setting the rules for lower house parliamentary polls due to be held later this year.

The Islamist-led upper house will now send it to the Supreme Constitutional Court to check its legality.

President Mohamed Mursi had originally called elections for April but postponed them when the court annulled the decree setting the dates.

Mursi has said the elections could now begin in October.
