LEGISLATION WATCH- The Local Administration Act will be a top priority for the House of Representatives during its fourth legislative session, which is set to begin in October, House Spokesman Salah Hassaballah said at a presser yesterday, Ahram Online reports. The legislation is pending national dialogue before being put to a vote in parliament, said Hassaballah. Also on parliament’s roster for the upcoming legislative session: The Criminal Procedures Act — which would introduce new avenues of mediation outside the court system and enforce new regulations for pretrial detention, among other issues — and amendments to the rent control law, which could allow landlords to marginally raise rents currently regulated by rent control provisions.
