Egypt's High Constitutional Court has adjourned to decide on the constitutionality of the country's disenfranchisement law. Judges are expected to deliver their verdict this afternoon.

If applied, the disenfranchisement law would disqualify Ahmed Shafiq from the presidential election runoff and lead to a re-run of the election.

The court will also rule on the constitutionality of Egypt's recent parliamentary elections.
