Egypt Plans Parliamentary Elections

As turmoil escalates in Egypt following a coup that successfully removed Islamist President Mohamed Morsi, the country will hold new parliamentary elections in about six months. According to a decree from the interim head of state, the vote will occur once amendments to its suspended constitution are OK'd in a referendum that will be held within the next four and a half months. After the legislative chamber is assembled, a presidential election will be announced.
