Earlier today Egypt's Supreme Court struck down the Egyptian Parliament. The ruling was that "last year's Parliamentary election was unconstitutional, deciding that one third of the seats (won) were "illegitimate"" Given that Egypt's presidential election run offs are coming up in a few days, this should further destabilize the situation in Egypt.
