Egypt's election commission has reinstated former Prime Minister Ahmed Shafiq as a candidate in the country's forthcoming presidential election.

The commission had barred Shafiq on Tuesday under a law that prevents senior officials from the era of President Hosni Mubarak from standing.

However the commission yesterday upheld Shafiq's appeal.

Shafiq was the last prime minister to serve under Mubarak, who was ousted by protests in February 2011.
