    (ANSAmed) - CAIRO, MARCH 3 - After the Constitutional Court ruled a law regulating voting districts unconstitutional, an administrative court officially suspended on Tuesday the holding of parliamentary elections scheduled for this month, state-run television announced.

    The higher court's ruling was announced on Sunday and amendments to the law and another electoral timetable for the two rounds are now awaited. Egyptian president Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi has ordered that the amendments be brought in within a month. Parliamentary elections are the third and last phase of the official 'roadmap' for Egypt's transition to democracy after the 2011 and 2013 uprisings. (ANSAmed).
