CAIRO - Egypt's army rulers issued a decree on Sunday to hasten the conclusion of parliamentary elections after pressure grew for a quicker handover to civilian control.

Final run-offs to the assembly's upper house will end on February 22 instead of March 12 as previously planned, the ruling military council said in a statement, and the house will hold its first sitting on February 28.
