The Supreme Administrative Court referred Saturday the case concerning the dissolution of Al-Nour Party to the court’s commissioners.
The lawsuit was presented to court on the basis that it is illegal to form political parties that are religion based. According to state-owned Al-Ahram, the “urgent” case hearing is scheduled for 14 February, 2014.
In July the Administrative Court referred a similar case to the commissioners to dissolve the Freedom and Justice party (FJP), the political wing of the Muslim Brotherhood. Ahmed Al-Fadaly of the Independence Current filed the lawsuit based on the idea that the Egyptian people had overthrown the Brotherhood from power.
In September the court ruled in favour of dissolving the Muslim Brotherhood organisation, confiscating its capital and headquarters.
