Cabinet to issue NGOs Law executive regulations “within days”

LEGISLATION WATCH- The executive regulations to the NGOs Law are ready and will be issued “within days,” an unnamed Social Solidarity Ministry source tells Al Mal. According to the source, the regulations — which should have been issued by last July — are expected to clarify several parts of the contentious law. Parliament had signed off on the bill, which forbids NGOs from participating in political activities and requires organizations to receive government approval prior to receiving foreign funding, back in 2016. President Abdel Fattah El Sisi signed it into law last May. The act has since come under fire several times, including from Republican senators and the US Congress’ human rights commission.
