PM issues executive regulations for Egypt’s new Disabilities Act

LEGISLATION WATCH- Gov’t issues Disabilities Act executive regulations: Prime Minister Moustafa Madbouly has issued the executive regulations for the recently enacted Disabilities Act, according to a Cabinet statement. The regs establish special government services, including in healthcare, education, employment and rehabilitation as well as guidelines on how to register for them. They also allow welfare payments for those unable to work due to their disability and mandate a 5% quota for the disabled in government-built housing. We had noted on Sunday that the House of Representatives approved a bill establishing a National Council for Persons with Disabilities to enforce the regs.
