The Egyptian Alliance for the Freedom of NGOs: A New Bill for NGOs in Egyptian Governorates

May 22nd, 2008 by Editor

At the end of the second meeting of the Egyptian Alliance for the Freedom of NGOs (EAFN), which was held on Monday 19/5/2008 at the Egyptian Organization for Human Rights, members of EAFN, which include a number of representatives of NGOs in Cairo and other Governorates, proposed a new bill for NGOs instead of Law No. 84 of 2002.  The Members agreed to present the NGO bill to the Egyptian governorates for discussion and amendments.

 

 

Mr. Hafez Abu Seada, Secretary-General of the Egyptian Organization for Human Rights, stated that the new bill aims to establish the freedom of NGOs and easing registration measures through allowing notification to the administration without the need to obtain prior permission. The most prominent articles of the bill stipulated that “the founder of an NGO should notify the Directorate of the Ministry of Social Solidarity with two copies of the main structure, two copies of the interior regulation, a copy of headquarters’ lease and copies for the other contracts of the headquarters.  A commitment includes the signature of the founders with the correct full personal data and ID numbers. The association should be established after submitting the notification and it has a right to practice its activities”.  The Administration is allowed to make an objection on the establishment of the association with a reasonable decision for 30 days from the date of receipt of the notification.  Further, it must submit the reason of the refusal before the Administrative Judiciary Court to discuss the reason of the objection and release its decision.  The administration should not make an objection on the registration of an NGO if it does not submit it to the court within 15 days from the date of notification. Appeals to the issued decision are allowed to be made 30 days from the date of the decision and it should be submitted to the High Administrative Court.

 

The members agreed to submit the new bill for discussion with professors of law and political science and representatives of the Ministry of Social Solidarity, political parties and members of People’s Assembly and Shura Council in order to obtain any proposed amendments to the law.  It will later be submitted to the People’s Assembly and Shura Council and President of the Republic.

 

It is worth noting that the EAFN held a press conference to declare its proposal after the approval of 51 legal and development associations in Cairo and other Egyptian Governorates (Alexandria, Gharbia, Beni Suef, Assiut, Minya, Mansoura, Suez, Damietta, Menoufia, Kafr El-Sheikh, Port Said) came together under this banner.

 

It is worth noting that the Egyptian Alliance for the Freedom of NGOs falls within the framework of EOHR’s campaign for NGO rights and freedom and in its efforts to amend Law No. 84 of 2002, in collaboration with Freidrich Naumann Foundation supported by the European Union.

 

 

The campaign began its work in March 2008.  It includes north and south governorates to discuss the concept of civil work and the role of NGOs in supporting the community as a partner in development.  It also examines the constraints and challenges which face NGOs and how to overcome them, and hopes to replace Law No. 84 of 2002.
