Egypt parliament to discuss new bill on elections within one month



Egyptian House of Representatives speaker Ali Abel Aal said Tuesday that the parliament will discuss a new bill on elections within the coming month.

Abel Aal did not elaborate on the new law, and whether it addresses presidential, parliamentary, or municipalities elections.

He warned MPs against not attending the scheduled sessions adding that he would order the break lounges of the parliament to be closed as well as closing the doors of the main hall during discussing the bill’s articles.

“The cost for not coming will be very heavy,” he said.
