Polls are due to open in Egypt in the first round of long-delayed elections to choose a new parliament.

They will be the first such elections since the previous chamber was dissolved by a court ruling in 2012.

The authorities say the poll is the final step in a transition to democracy.

However, critics say most candidates are supporters of President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi and the new parliament is likely to strengthen his control.
