Egypt passes presidential election law

President Adly Mansour

Interim Egyptian President Adly Mansour announced a presidential election law on Saturday, setting the stage for polls to take place later this year to elect a new president to replace ousted leader Mohamed Morsi. The election is seen as a major step to restore order and stability in Egypt after the military deposed of Mosrsi in July. Army chief Abdel Fattah Sisi has emerged as Egypt’s most popular political figure but has not yet announced his candidacy, though his aides have confirmed that he intends to run.
