Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi spoke about the importance of introducing the personal status law for societal dialogue during the coming period.
Sisi called on the Egyptian Minister of Justice, Omar Marawan, to talk about the latest developments in the amendments to the law, and to conduct societal dialogue.
Sisi spoke about creating a “family to be a source of spending to children in cases of disagreement between parents.
“If you are getting married, you will put [money] in the fund. Whoever is able to hold a wedding can pay that amount, which is not a lot,” he added.
The Minister of Justice said that all segments of society will be invited to discuss the draft personal status law, and it will be presented to the House of Representatives, the Senate, and the cabinet as soon as it is completed.
The Minister of Justice stressed that the ministry obtained the approval of Al Azhar, the Endowments Ministry and the Dar Al Iftaa about the need to document divorce if it occurs orally, before adding it to the provisions of the new bill.
