Egypt Holds First Parliamentary Session Since 2012
CAIRO (Sputnik) Then-interim President Adly Mansour and Sisi held legislative power in the 2-year absence of a parliament in Egypt. The House of Representatives was elected in late 2015, after the dissolution of the previous legislature in 2012.

"I announce before you, the elected representatives of the people, that the legislative power transfers to the parliament, elected during the free elections," Sisi said addressing the parliament.

The new legislature now has two weeks to review all laws adopted during the period when the legislative power belonged to the country's president.
