Sisi participates in Conference of Heads of African Courts and Constitutional Councils

Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi on Saturday participated via video-conference in the preparatory meeting for the Conference of Heads of African Courts and Constitutional Councils, with a speech calling on the need to benefit from the digital judicial platform.

Sisi’s speech stressed upon the importance of controlling the legal framework to better regulate information security, the legal governance of social media and its content and dealing with huge databases and personal information for citizens.

The most important challenges arising from the coronavirus pandemic are an accelerated and unprecedented trend towards digital transformation, the reform and rehabilitation of health care systems, and a shift towards a green economy.

As Egypt’s constitutions are legal documents that guide and direct all legislative and legal efforts, Sisi noted that they must always be subject to review and updating.

He urged all parties to participate in discussions regarding the challenges facing Africa, to work collectively to develop common constitutional rules that support the continent’s vision.
