Egypt's parliament to hold last session before summer recess Tuesday
Published in Ahram Online on 15 - 08 - 2020

The House of Representatives will adjourn for its annual summer recess starting Tuesday, informed sources told Ahram Online on Friday.
"The House will convene on Sunday and Monday to discuss and vote on a number of laws. A final meeting will be held on Tuesday before the House adjourns for its summer recess," said an informed source, adding that "parliament may meet again during the second week of October, in line with the constitution. However, the Tuesday meeting may be the last before new parliamentary elections are held in November.
"In any case, the current parliament should complete its five-year tenure that ends on 9 January 2021," said the source.
The current House held its first meeting on 10 January 2016.
Parliament will meet on Sunday and Monday to discuss 13 new laws on fighting sexual harassment and bullying crimes, and regulating litigation in personal status affairs.
The other laws up for discussion are meant to regulate the performance of public notary offices, universities, the Egyptian Wakf (religious endowments) Authority, funding the administration of educational schemes, supporting the physically challenged persons, and burying water pools.
Another important law featuring on the agenda has to do with regulating medical clinical researches. This law was passed last year but President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi referred it back to parliament to be amended and discussed again.
Before it adjourns for its summer recess on Tuesday, parliament is expected to take a final vote on six laws on intellectual property rights, microfinance, code of construction schemes, the commercial register, and care for patients with psychological troubles.
