An Egyptian administrative court postponed Saturday a lawsuit demanding the dissolution of the Muslim Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party and the conservative Salafist Nour Party to 15 March 2014 pending the recommendation of the State Commissioners Authority, a body that advises the government on legal issues.

Lawyer Gamal Ibrahim filed the suit in the wake of the ouster of Muslim Brotherhood leader and Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in July, demanding the dissolution of the two parties on grounds that they were founded "on a religious basis, which violates the law and the constitution."

Egypt's Nour Party, a former ideological ally of the embattled Brotherhood, supported the post-Morsi political roadmap declared by army chief Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi when he announced Morsi's ouster.

Nour Party has officially announced it will campaign for a Yes vote in January's upcoming referendum on the amended 2012 constitution, prepared by the 50-Member Committee appointed by Interim President Adly Mansour.

In a separate lawsuit in September, a Cairo court ordered a ban on Muslim Brotherhood’s activities amid a sustained crackdown on the Islamist group and its supporters since Morsi's ouster.

Illogical lawsuit
How can the existence of those two Islamist parties be in question if the constitution which makes them illegal is not even in force yet? It makes no sense.
