Draft social welfare act with Finance Ministry for review

LEGISLATION WATCH- Draft social welfare act with Finance Ministry for review. A draft of a new proposed Social Welfare Act is now with the Finance Ministry for review, Social Solidarity Minister Ghada Wali said yesterday. The law would amend the social welfare and pensions systems, guarantee the right to unemployment benefits, and establish a new pension fund. The law will require Cabinet approval before being referred to the Council of State (Maglis El Dawla) for review, and the House of Representatives for final sign-off. Wali had said back in March that she expected the law to pass the House by the end of June.
