Delayed Egypt elections to start on October 17

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi waves as he arrives for the opening ceremony of a new waterway at the Suez Canal on August 6, 2015, in the port city of IsmailiyaEgypt’s much delayed legislative elections, the first since President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi ousted his Islamist predecessor and cracked down on the opposition, will be contested between October and December. Electoral commission chief Ayman Abbas said on Sunday that voting will be in phases from October 17 to December 2, with a new 568-seat parliament in place by the end of the year. The polls come more than two years after Sisi, then army chief, toppled Islamist president Mohamed Morsi whose now-banned Muslim Brotherhood swept the last general election in 2011.
