Egypt's President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi issued a presidential decree on Thursday to retrospectively form the High Elections Committee (HEC), though it has been unofficially working since 15 July this year, state news agency MENA reported.
According to the presidential decree, judge Ayman Abbas, the head of Cairo Appeals Court, will head the HEC.
The committee will be formed by two deputies from the Court of Cassation, two deputies from the State Council and two heads from the appeals court.
The members are chosen according to the seniority of their positions.
The decree added that the HEC would start its work to prepare and supervise the parliamentary elections in sight of the political rights law and the house of representatives law.
Egypt has been without a parliament since June 2012 when a court dissolved the lower chamber after ruling it was not constitutionally elected.
El-Sisi ratified amendments to the election law that regulates electoral constituencies in July.
According to Egyptian officials, the parliamentary elections will be held in Egypt before the end of 2015.
