#AceNewsReport – Dec.01: Egypt’s parliament approves new law to regulate NGOs

Two thirds of Egypt’s MPs approved on Tuesday a new 89-article law aimed at regulating the operations of NGOs in the country.

The law, drafted by parliament’s social solidarity committee, will give the existing NGOs one year to adjust their legal conditions – instead of six months as it was proposed in an earlier draft last week.
