Egypt's president promises elections within six months of constitution

Egypt's interim president has affirmed that the government is committed to holding parliamentary and presidential elections within six months of approval of the new constitution, to be voted on next month.

The timetable means Egypt would have an elected government by next summer to replace that installed by the army after it ousted elected Islamist President Mohamed Morsi in July.

Adly Mansour also said that it would not be unconstitutional for presidential elections to be held before parliamentary elections.

The initial plan unveiled in July required parliamentary elections to be held first, but the constitution to be voted on in a referendum on Jan. 14 and 15 would allow presidential elections first.
