Cabinet to amend parliamentary election law
Presidential Advisor for constitutional affairs Ali Awad - YOUM7 (Archive)

CAIRO: The Cabinet, rather than the State Council, is tasked with preparing amendments to the law on parliamentary elections, said Ali Awad, advisor to the president for constitutional affairs, in a statement to Youm7.

Awad added that the State Council’s legislation department would discuss and make observations on the amendments, then send it to interim President Adly Mansour for approval.

He said the Cabinet would make amendments to the Legal Council of Representatives for the House of Representatives in order to be commensurate with the 2013 Constitution, because there are two interpretations on organizing parliamentary elections.

Awad also said community dialogue would be held on the amendments, as it was for the Presidential Election Law.
