Egyptian court orders the National Democratic Party dissolved

There has been momentum this week to seek retribution against the former holders of power in Egypt.  Al Jazeera is reporting on the latest step, disbanding the National Democratic Party and turning its assets over to the government.  The vote to hold new elections at an early date looked to benefit the NDP, as well as the Muslim Brotherhood, because the NDP maintained the infrastructure necessary to organize for a national election.  There is a concern that parties currently forming lack the capacity to contest an election at the early date.  Dissolving the NDP should have major ramifications in upcoming elections.  I have not yet seen any discussion of whether or not the NDP can successfully continue on after a name change and a face lift.
