      Egypt's Interim President Promises Elections Within 7 Months

      Egypt's interim president, Adly Mansour, said on Sunday that the government is committed to holding parliamentary and presidential elections within six months of approval of the new constitution, to be voted on next month, reports Reuters.

      The timetable means that Egypt would have an elected government by next summer to replace the interim government installed by the army after it ousted Islamist President Mohammed Morsi in July.
