The Supreme Constitutional Court set 15 January as its deadline for reviewing all pending cases, including those related to the legitimacy of the Shura Council and the Constituent Assembly.
The court convened its general assembly on Sunday to discuss its work in light of the new Constitution and the end of the sit-in staged outside the court by supporters of President Mohamed Morsy and the Muslim Brotherhood.
It was its second meeting since the removal of seven judges as mandated by the recently approved Constitution.
The SCC suspended its work on 2 December, saying that protesters staging a sit-in had prevented judges from entering the court. In a statement at the time, the judges said they were facing assaults against their independence and that the sit-in was an insult to the judges.
