Cairo's administrative court on Wednesday postponed the case examining the legality of the formation of the constituent assembly to 30 July after Muslim Brotherhood lawyers requested the judges overseeing the trial recuse themselves.

The lawyers, who are defending the assembly's legality, promised to issue a statement later explaining the reasons for their request.

The court said that Judge Karem Abdel-Latif, who is currently heading the case, is to continue overseeing the trial until a decision is made on the recusal quest.

Cairo's administrative court are also currently examining appeals filed against the amended constitutional declaration issued by Supreme Council of the Armed Forces on 17 June.
