CAIRO, Sept 30 (Aswat Masriya) - Egypt's Supreme Administrative Court will issue on Thursday its final ruling on all appeals related to candidacy in the upcoming elections. 

The court will rule on 125 appeals.

The HEC announced earlier this week that it has approved 2,573 candidates running as individuals and four party lists in the first phase of elections.

Polling in phase one will run from October 18-19 while the second phase will run from November 22-23.

The first phase will include 14 provinces; Giza, Fayoum, Beni Suef, Minya, Assuit, New Valley, Sohag, Qenna, Luxor, Aswan, Red Sea, Alexandria, Behiera and Matrouh.

Egypt's last Islamist-dominated parliament, the first to be seated after the January 2011 uprising, was dissolved in June 2012, when the Supreme Constitutional Court annuled the law on which the election was based.
