REUTERS - The judicial committtee supervising Egypt’s first presidential election since Hosni Mubarak was overthrown last year said on Sunday it had yet to finalise a date for the vote, although an election official said it would be in the first week of June.
“The committee has decided to postpone announcing the schedule for elections until it can reach a solution that will allow Egyptians abroad to vote in a manner that will make their participation real,” Soltan said.
“I have no intention to run for the presidency, under any circumstances,” Elaraby told journalists on Sunday, after newspapers reported negotiations between parties to back him.
