Timeline of parliamentary elections to be announced Thursday

Details on the timeline of the parliamentary elections and the date of the opening of a window to declare candidacy will be announced Thursday during a news conference, announced a Tuesday statement by the Egyptian High Elections Committee (HEC).

The parliamentary elections, a long-awaited final step in the 2013 Egypt’s Road map, are currently scheduled to take place at some point in March before the economic summit.
 
Since the parliamentary elections law was adopted in May 2014, many political parties have fused under coalitions to run for office.
 
The Popular Current headed by former presidential candidate Hamdeen Sabbahi announced Tuesday it would not take part in the coming elections.
