Parliament speaker calls on lower house to convene on Tuesday following Morsi's decree to reinstate assembly.
Egypt's parliament speaker has invited the lower house to convene on Tuesday, MENA state news agency reported, following a presidential decree to reinstate the assembly dissolved by the military.
Saad al-Katatni "has called on parliament to convene at 2:00 pm (1200 GMT) on Tuesday," MENA said.
The call by Katatni, who belongs to the Muslim Brotherhood, comes after President Mohamed Morsi ordered the return of the Islamist-led parliament after the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF) dissolved it based on a court ruling.
