Ride-Hailing Apps Act exec regs out soon

LEGISLATION WATCH- Executive regulations for the Ride Hailing Apps Act will be ready before year-end, Mohamed Hegazy, the head of the CIT Ministry’s legislative division, tells Masrawy. The act passed the House of Representatives in May and was signed into law in June. The executive regulations were initially due out in September. We had heard shortly after the announcement would not be ready before January 2019, but now appear to be on the fast track after recent protests by Uber and Careem drivers over the delay. Careem had submitted a proposal last month to the committee drafting the regs to include provisions that would ensure driver inclusion, flexible working hours for seasonal drivers, and a call for a single authority to enforce the law.
