An Egyptian MP for a Cairo constituency passed away on Tuesday after suffering from health problems, local media reported.
Sayed Farrag was a representative of the eastern Cairo Hadaek Al-Quba district for the Masr Balady Party--a member of the pro-government Support Egypt bloc.
Under Egypt's parliamentary elections law, the House of Representatives and the country's election commission should call elections for his now-vacant seat within 60 days.
This is the fourth time the parliament should hold a new vote for a vacant seat.
In April, independent MP Mohamed Mostafa El-Khouly of a Fayoum constituency passed away and his wife was elected to his seat two months later.
MP Sameh Seif El-Yazel, who was head of the pro-government Support Egypt bloc, died in the same month.
In March, elections were recalled for the seat of pro-government TV host Tawfil Okasha in Daqahliya governorate after he was dismissed from the chamber after he held talks with Israel's envoy to Cairo during a dinner at his home.
