The Shura Council’s Committee for Human Development and Local Administration discussed the controversial draft law regulating civil society organisations on Sunday.
The discussion comes on the same day that the Egyptian Organisation for Human Rights sent a set of observations regarding the bill to Ahmed Fahmy, the head of the Shura Council.
The observations are regarding the draft law that the cabinet presented to the Shura Council. Arguments broke out during the council’s session last week while members of the council were discussing the committee’s draft of the law. At the end of the session, the Shura Council agreed on the bill “in principle”.
