Egypt holds parliamentary elections in the spring

Egypt will hold parliamentary elections in February or March, two months after the country votes in a referendum on a new constitution, Egyptian foreign minister Nabil Fahmy announced. The Freedom and Justice Party, political arm of the deposed president Mohamed Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood, "is still legal in Egypt" and free to participate in the parliamentary election, he said.
A new constitution will replace the former pro Islamic charter. Presidential elections will take place next summer.
