Last Night’s Talk Shows on 18 February 2021
It was a somewhat insipid night on the airwaves last night, with no single story leading the conversation.
The Real Estate Registry Act is coming into effect as of 6 March. As of that date, citizens will need to get their sale and purchase agreements validated by their local ma’moreya before registering their property at a real estate registry office, spokesperson of the Real Estate Registry Club Ashraf Fleifel told Yahduth fi Misr’s Sherif Amer (watch, runtime: 3:42). The law has been in the works since early 2020, when former House Speaker Ali Abdel Aal hounded the government to better regulate the offices and expedite registry procedures.
Covid-19 vaccine distribution and shoring up healthcare infrastructure across Africa were key talking points during an African Union meeting President Abdel Fattah El Sisi attended alongside France’s Emmanuel Macron, Al Hayah Al Youm’s Mohamed Sherdy noted (watch, runtime: 2:00).
