El Sisi ratifies law redrawing electoral constituencies

LEGISLATION WATCH- President Abdel Fattah El Sisi ratified on Monday a bill redrawing Egypt’s electoral districts into 143 single-member constituencies across Egypt’s 27 governorates, and four in which MPs are elected through party lists, Al Masry Al Youm reports, carrying a copy of the bill as published in the Official Gazette on Thursday. The party list constituencies will include Cairo and the Middle and South Nile Delta, the North and Middle and South of Upper Egypt; the Eastern Nile Delta, and the Western Nile Delta and Alexandria. The draft law was approved by the House of Representatives in August. House elections are set to be held in November.
