Egypt's supreme constitutional court ruled as illegal the law by which the upper house of parliament was elected but said that the chamber would not be dissolved until a new parliament is in place, judicial sources said.

The ruling, made on Sunday, said the upper house, or Shura Council, would be dissolved once the new parliament is elected. A date has yet to be set for the elections. President Mohamed Morsi had said they could begin in October.
