An Egyptian court has ordered the cessation of parliamentary elections scheduled for this Sunday in 24 of the 254 districts. Observers, however, believe the court’s orders will be overturned when they are contested by the ruling party.

Analysts assert that court orders to reinstate the opposition and other independent orders have been ignored by Egypt’s High Elections Commission since they belong to the country’s strongest opposition, the Muslim Brotherhood.

According to authorities, many should be disqualified because they are misrepresenting themselves as independents.

Over 1300 MB members and supporters have been unjustly detained following the group’s announcement that they will run in the election.
