CAIRO - 29 May 2018: The House of Representatives has endorsed 111 draft laws and 32 international agreements since the start of its third regular session on October 3.
Given the okay, the bills aimed to upgrade the different sectors, especially where providing health care, supporting workers and youth rights, countering corruption and easing investment measures are concerned, said spokesman for the parliament Salah Hassaballah in a press conference Tuesday.
He cited bills on health and social insurance, rights of persons with disabilities, trade unions and nuclear energy.
The House pays particular attention to a draft law to regulate the press and media and another on criminal procedures which contains nearly 600 articles and is considered the backbone of the Egyptian justice system, Hassaballah noted.
