Egyptian President Mursi Demands the Parliament to be Reinstated

Stockbyte/ThinkStock(CAIRO) -- After a month since the Egyptian parliament was dissolved, President Mohammed Mursi has demanded the parliament to be re-established, according to the BBC.

The military disbanded the parliament after the Supreme Court ruled that the parliament was unconstitutional because party members contested seats reserved for independents.

The Muslim Brotherhood, the political party of Mursi, won the most seats in the parliament.

Mursi is the country’s first democratically elected president.

Before he was elected, the army had granted itself more power by taking away any authority the president had over the military.
