Egypt President Mohammed Mursi reverses parliament ban

BBC News reports: Egypt’s President Mohammed Mursi has ordered parliament to reconvene, a month after it was dissolved by court order amid a row over voting systems.

The Supreme Court had ruled parliament unconstitutional because two voting systems had been used in the election.

The military, which was then running the country, enforced the dissolution.

But Mr Mursi, whose Muslim Brotherhood won most parliamentary seats, said the chamber should reconvene until a new election could be held.
