Egypt's National Election Committee to announce Senate election details
Published in Ahram Online on 02 - 07 - 2020

Egypt's National Committee for Elections said in a statement on Thursday that its board will meet in the next few hours to settle on the measures necessary for holding the Senate elections.
The committee said the meeting comes after President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi ratified on Thursday four election laws that were finally approved by parliament on 17 June.
The laws are on the election and formation of the 300-seat Senate, the 596-seat House of Representatives, the Exercise of Political Rights, and the National Committee for Elections.
The statement said the committee's executive body is currently preparing for holding the Senate election. "This will include preparations related to the voting stations, judges supervising the elections and voter lists," said the statement.
It added that the committee's chairman Lasheen Ibrahim will hold a press conference to announce the date of opening the door for candidate registration and the days of voting in Egypt and abroad.
The statement indicated that the committee will make sure that all anti-coronavirus precautionary measures will be adopted during the voting process to prevent overcrowdedness.
A number of press reports said the Senate election will be held in August.
The Senate will include 300 seats, one-third of which will be elected via the individual candidacy system, another third to be elected through the closed party list system, and a third to be named by the president.
The Senate election will be followed by House election.
