The Administrative Judiciary Court headed by Counselor Sami Abdel Hamid, Vice President of the State Council, decided to postpone the hearing of the case No. 56183 to suspend the decision of the National Elections authority to invite voters to the elections of the House of Representatives 2021 for tomorrow’s session.
Former parliamentarian Muhammad Anwar Esmat Al-Sadat filed the case, demanding the suspension of the House of Representatives elections, then he amended his request in the case sheet to demand his eligiblity to run for the House of Representatives elections 2021, and obligating the National Elections authority to accept his candidacy papers.
The text of the lawsuit came, to cancel the decision to open the door for candidacy dated September 12, 2020, based on the fact that Article 106 of the Egyptian Constitution promulgated in 2014 and amended in 2019 stipulates that “the term of membership of the House of Representatives is 5 years starting from the date of its first meeting, and the elections for the new Council are held during the 60 Days prior to the end of its term ».
Thus the calls for elections should have started next November and not this September, which caused the decision to become unconstitutional and thus violating the law.
However, Counselor Lashin Ibrahim, head of the National Elections Authority and Vice President of the Court of Cassation, denied that a court ruling had been issued by the Administrative Court to postpone the next House of Representatives elections to next November.
