The Shura Council agreed in principle during its Sunday session to the law proposal governing civil society organisations operating in Egypt. The agreed on proposal was submitted by the council’s Human Development Committee.
Meanwhile the cabinet of ministers is planning to submit another law proposal for the same cause.
Sunday’s session witnessed arguments between several Shura members, some criticising the cabinet for not submitting necessary laws to the council, while others insisting that the council has full authority to legislate without the interference of governmental ministries.
