More than 12 lawsuits demand the cancellation of a decree

Cairo (AFP) - Egypt’s administrative court will next week examine a case demanding the cancellation of a decree issued by President Mohamed Morsy granting himself sweeping powers, an official said on Monday.

Abdel Meguid Al-Moqannen, the deputy chief of the State Council, said more than 12 lawsuits had been filed and that the case would be examined on 4 December,  the MENA news agency reported.

Morsy issued a constitutional declaration on Thursday that said no court can challenge any of his decisions or laws, effectively placing him beyond judicial review.
