Santa brought us no noteworthy business news

It was another humdrum evening on the airwaves, which had no noteworthy business news or discussions to offer us on Christmas. Al Hayah Al Youm (watch, runtime: 05:50), Hona Al Asema (watch, runtime: 32:07), and Masaa DMC (watch, runtime: 08:39) spent the better part of the evening focusing on what would have been late president Anwar Sadat’s 100th birthday.

Calling all taxpayers: Tax Authority head Abdel Azim Hussein phoned in to Masaa DMC to urge individual taxpayers to submit their tax returns by tomorrow to catch the window for exemption from late fees (watch, runtime: 04:51).

Prime Minister Moustafa Madbouly attempted to play nice with parliament by meeting with MPs and House Speaker Ali Abdel Aal after members of his cabinet rejected an invitation to attend some sessions (watch, runtime: 04:21).

The lack of real political competition in parliament was a topic of discussion for Mostakbal Watan head Abdel Hady Kasby and Al Hayah Al Youm’s Khaled Abu Bakr (watch, runtime: 01:18).
