CAIRO — Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak decreed on Wednesday that Nov. 28 would be the date for the country's parliamentary elections.

State-run Middle East News Agency carried Mubarak's decree issued Wednesday.

The ruling National Democratic Party along with the three legal opposition parties and the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood group have all announced they will field candidates to fill the 508 seats up for grabs. The Muslim Brotherhood gets around the ban by running its candidates as independents.
