The General coordinator of the National Dialogue Diaa Rashwan, 11-6-20233, slammed those calling for early presidential elections in Egypt, saying it does not follow the constitution.
He explained that the procedures for Egyptian presidential elections are held at least 120 days before the end of the current presidential term.
Thus, he noted that if 120 days are calculated from April 2, this will mean that the door for candidacy opens on December 3 and is not permissible after that.
Rashwan said that some are now saying there will be parliamentary, presidential and local elections at the same time.
He stressed that this will not happen and it is not permissible to dissolve parliament except by a referendum.
