Egypt election committee working on new poll timetable

Setting a new timetable is a move that looks set to delay the vote, which was due to start on March 22 and is the final step in a political roadmap the army announced in July 2013 #India #China #Egypt #France #Russia #markets #Argentina #United Kingdom #Entertainment
