Cairo (CNN) - The Egyptian parliament convened for less than an hour Tuesday, in a gesture of defiance against the country's military rulers, who dissolved the legislature last month.
The session was the first since the nation's highest court said parliamentary elections were unconstitutional, prompting the military to disband the body.
The lawmakers met after President Mohamed Morsy, who took office June 30, opted to override the edict of the military, which has run the country since the 2011 revolution that ousted longtime leader Hosni Mubarak.
This morning on "Early Start," Ivan Watson reports on the parliament meeting.
