Shura Council elections were scheduled to be elected in Egypt at most a year after the new House of Representatives was seated, according to Article 230 of the 2012 version of the Egyptian constitution.[1] The election did not take place because the Shura Council was abolished in the 2013 draft constitution;[2] the constitution has been passed;[3] meaning that the abolition is final.[2]
