Shura Council elections were scheduled to take place in Egypt at most a year after the new House of Representatives was seated, according to Article 230 of the Egyptian Constitution of 2012. The election did not take place because the Shura Council was abolished in the 2014 constitution.
However, in 2019, after the 2019 Egyptian constitutional referendum, further amendments made the parliament a bicameral body, with the Shura Council (which was abolished in 2014) restored as the Senate, which would consist of 120 elected members and 60 appointed by the president.
After the referendum passed, a law will detail and clarify the constitutional amendments and set election dates. According to the parliament's chair, the election is expected to be held in April-May 2020, alongside the parliamentary elections.
