A reshuffle is expected at Egypt’s National Council for Human Rights (NCHR), state news agency MENA said Tuesday.

The move comes amidst widespread changes at state institutions since the election of President Mohamed Morsi.

The Shura Council (parliament’s upper house) will undertake the reshuffle, which is the second at the body since Hosni Mubarak’s ouster in February 2011, according to MENA.

The Shura Council recently appointed new editors-in-chief at the country’s state-owned newspapers.

The Administrative Court is set rule on the constitutionality of the Shura Council on 4 September and could dissolve the body just as the People’s Assembly (parliament’s lower house) was in mid-June.
