Egypt’s highest court Sunday, December 2 postponed ruling on the legitimacy of the constitutional assembly after judges accused Islamist supporters of President Mohamed Morsi of blocking their chambers in a deepening struggle over the country’s political future, The Los Angeles Times reported. About 2,000 protesters rallied in front of the Supreme Constitutional Court, which was expected to defy a decree by Morsi and rule against the assembly’s authority to write the nation’s new charter. The move against the court was the latest skirmish in a separation of powers battle over the constitution. The assembly, which the president had said was immune from judicial oversight, finished a draft constitution on Friday to preempt the court decision. Morsi said the proposed constitution will be voted on in a national referendum Dec. 15, essentially sidelining the court.
