CAIRO - Egypt's parliamentary election may not be held until November, about two months later than originally planned, an army source said on Wednesday after some political groups called for the vote to be pushed back.

But the source said the registration of candidates would start in September, which he said meant the army was sticking to its commitment to start the handover of power to civilians then.

"Procedures for a parliamentary election will begin in September, possibly the middle of the month. That will involve registration of candidates," the army source told Reuters.

"Then there will be a campaigning period, after which an election will be held," he said. "This could take the voting till after September, possibly November."
