Report: Morsi sees parliamentary vote in October

CAIRO - Egyptian parliamentary elections could begin in October, six months later than originally planned, state news agency MENA has reported  Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi as saying.
Morsi said he expected the new parliament to convene before the end of the year, MENA reported.
Morsi had called a four-stage parliamentary election starting in late April but the plan was thwarted by a court ruling that overturned his decree calling the vote.
Under the original plan, the new parliament would have convened in early July. Morsi was addressing the Egyptian community in Doha, where he is attending an Arab summit.
