Egypt's general election may not be delayed to November, two months later than originally planned, an army source told Reuters.
The source added the registration of candidates would begin in September.
"Then there will be a campaigning period, after which an election will be held," he said. "This could take the voting till after September, possibly November."
On Tuesday, the military rulers sternly warned protesters against “harming public interests” as demonstrators continued to lay laid siege to Cairo’s largest government building and threatened to expand their sit-in to other sites in the capital. The military also rejected criticism of its handling of Egypt’s transition to democratic rule, vowing not to give up its interim role in managing the country’s affairs until an elected government takes over.
