Egyptian Parliament Gets an Issued Statement From NGOs On Enforcement of Constitutional and Human Rights
Last week, thirteen non-government organizations issued a joint statement to the Egyptian parliament. The statement stated recommendations to make certain that constitutional and human rights are enforced thoroughly.
The statement comes during a time of continuing national and regional security concerns in the nation. One major recommendation in the statement was that the parliament needs to review all laws enforced since the Constitution of the Arab Republic of Egypt was ratified by public referendum in 2014. An article of the Egyptian Constitution states that the House of Representatives must discuss all laws that have been issued in its absence within 15 days of its assembly.
