Egypt's speaker of the People's Assembly Saad El-Katatny said that the parliament has not yet received notification of the Thursday High Constitutional Court's decision
to dissolve both houses of parliament.
In a statement published on Friday morning on the official site of the Muslim Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) El-Katatny charged the media has been waging a war against the parliament in the past few months.
El-Katatny hinted that the court's ruling is politically motivated claiming that Prime Minister Kamal El-Ganzouri had previously threatened him that the Constitutional Court already had a raedy-to-announce verdict to dissolve the parliament.
He added he participated on Thursday in a combined meeting between the executive board of the FJP and the Brotherhood's Supreme Guidance Bureau to discuss the steps the group will take in the next few days.
El-Katatny added they also agreed the FJP's presidential candidate, Mohamed Morsi, will continue in the second round of the presidential elections set to start on Saturday.
