A Political Court

Those who would like a more political court are invited to check out how things work in Egypt:

Egypt’s highest court has spoken: the decision to dissolve the country’s parliament is binding. Monday’s ruling is a blow to newly-elected president Mohammed Morsi, whose Muslim Brotherhood party won most seats in the chamber in a the recent election. The military has enforced the court order to dissolve the parliament since last month, after some party members contested seats reserved for independents. In a presidential decree issued Sunday, Morsi ordered parliament to reconvene, and held an emergency session of the assembly. Egypt’s Supreme Court responded Monday saying its ruling to disband parliament is “final and not subject to appeal.”
