The two phase parliamentary elections will be on October 18, and the second starting November 22.

The elections were scheduled to be the first in the road map after a military coup in July 2013 that toppled the ex-president Morsi.

Earlier the election was to be held in last March which was postponed again after a court ruled that part of the election law was unconstitutional.
