El Sisi ratifies pensions, wage increases for civil servants effective 1 July

President Abdel Fattah El Sisi has ratified a bill to increase pensions and salary increases for civil servants by 15% starting 1 July, according to the official gazette. State employees subject to the Civil Service Act will get a periodic raise of 7% and a monthly bonus of EGP 150 starting 1 July. Employees that do not fall under the act’s umbrella would be eligible for a 10% raise. El Sisi has also ratified amendments to the Administrative Prosecution Authority Act and the Judicial Authority Act, giving himself the authority to appoint the head of each of the authorities from pools of the seven most-senior prosecutors or judges. Appointees will hold office for four-year terms or until they hit retirement age, and would be limited to one term in office.
