Egypt's President Mohammed Mursi has ordered parliament to reconvene, a month after it was dissolved.

Mursi, whose Muslim Brotherhood won most seats, said the chamber should reconvene until a new election is held.

The military had enforced a court order last month dissolving parliament because party members had contested seats reserved for independents.

The military council held emergency talks on Mursi's decree but did not decide on any action.

The council, known as the Scaf, said it would hold another urgent meeting.
