CAIRO — Egypt’s state television says the country’s highest court has asserted its ruling that led to the disbanding of parliament is final and binding, setting up a showdown with the new president.
President Mohammed Morsi has recalled the parliament dissolved by the tribunal last month.
Monday’s brief TV report followed a meeting by the Supreme Constitutional Court to discuss Morsi’s surprise decision. It came just hours after the speaker of the dissolved legislature, Saad el-Katatni, called for the chamber to convene on Tuesday.
