CAIRO, July 10 (Xinhua) -- Egypt's Supreme Constitutional Court on Tuesday suspended a presidential decree reinstating the dissolved People's Assembly (lower house of parliament).

The court, presided by Maher El-Behary, ordered to halt President Mohamed Morsi's decree issued on Sunday for the lower house to resume work.

It also ordered to execute its former decisions to void the parliament's lower house.

Speaker of the legislative body Mohamed Saad el-Katatni chaired a 15-minute session on Tuesday morning before the suspension was announced.
