Egypt opens registration for parliamentary election

Egypt's first parliamentary elections since the ouster of Hosni Mubarak begun submitting their applications today, the official news agency reported.
The submissions came as Egypt's deputy prime minister resigned after deadly clashes sparked a wave of anger at the ruling military and calls for the premier to quit.
The Supreme Council of the Armed Forces which took power when Mubarak was forced out by a popular uprising in February had promised a six-month transition period before handing power to civilian rule.
Egyptians will start voting for their representatives in the People's Assembly starting November 28 and in the Shura Council on January 29 next year, in a multi-round process expected to last four months.
The People's Assembly is scheduled to hold its first session on March 17 and the Shura Council on March 24.
Following the parliamentary and senate election, a committee is scheduled to draft a new constitution and then presidential elections are to be held.
The committee has up to six months to finish its work, meaning the presidential election might not be held until the end of August.(
