Sisi also demanded that "legal measures be considered to avoid delaying the elections," a statement from his office said.

Earlier in the day, Egypt's Supreme Constitutional Court ruled that an article in an election-related law of drawing constituencies was unconstitutional, paving the way for a possible delay in a long-awaited March-April polls.

Sisi vowed respect for the judiciary's rulings to cement the principals of law sovereignty, Xinhua reported.

Meanwhile, the country's Supreme Electoral Commission, following the ruling, held an urgent meeting to discuss the impact of the court ruling on the elections map.
