Egypt's electoral commission said Sunday it is preparing a new timetable for parliamentary polls, delaying the March 21 vote after a court ruled parts of the election law unconstitutional. President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi ordered that the law be redrafted within a month and asked that "legal measures be undertaken to avoid delaying" the election, his office said. The administrative court, which rules on state-related matters, must still formally rule on delaying the poll currently scheduled to end on May 7. The election would be the first for a new parliament since former army chief Sisi overthrew Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in 2013.
