CAIRO (Reuters) - Egypt's election commission has set November 21 as the date for a vote for the lower house of parliament, the country's first poll since President Hosni Mubarak was ousted seven months ago, Al Arabiya Television said on Saturday.
It quoted the head of the election commission as saying voting for the upper house will take place two months later on January 22.
Election commission officials were not immediately available to comment on the report, and an army source said the date will be announced in the coming days.
The election will be the first free vote in decades for Egyptians after 30 years of autocratic rule by Mubarak.
The country's ruling military council has been under pressure to fix a precise date for the election it had promised to hold when it took over after Mubarak was forced to step down in February.
A member of the ruling council said in July the vote will be held in three stages to make it easier for monitors to oversee voting.
Political parties are due to meet members of the ruling military council on Sunday to discuss preparations for the elections.
