A law passed by Egypt's interim president will set the stage for parliamentary elections this year but political parties fear it will return the country to a system similar to one under ousted president Hosni Mubarak.One of the most significant changes in the election law is a return to a system where individual candidates take the majority of seats in parliament, rather than party lists of candidates.During that election two-thirds of seats were allotted to party lists and one-third to individuals, allowing the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamist parties to win about 70 percent of seats in the first parliamentary election after the uprising.
