Last Night’s Talk Shows on 15 March 2021

The Central Bank of Egypt’s new mortgage lending initiative was the talk of the town on the airwaves last night. Everyone had coverage (and praise), from Al Hayah Al Youm’s Mohamed Sherdy (watch, runtime: 11:41) to El Hekaya’s Amr Adib (watch, runtime: 7:06). Banque Misr Chairman Mohamed El Etreby also phoned El Hekaya to explain the procedures (watch, runtime: 3:14). We have chapter and verse in the news well, above.

Not getting the attention it deserves: The Council of State (Maglis El Dawla) signed off on appointing women judges to the council for the first time, after President Abdel Fattah El Sisi issued a directive earlier this month ordering women judges to be brought into the Maglis and the Supreme Judicial Council. The judges will be transferred from other judicial bodies, including the State Lawsuits Authority and the Administrative Prosecution. Among those taking note: Hadith Al Kahera’s Khairy Ramadan and Karima Awad (watch, runtime: 7:35) and Al Hayah Al Youm’s Sherdy (watch, runtime: 3:39).
