The Egyptian Organization for Human Rights will hold a meeting with civil society organizations’ representatives to discuss the draft law of civil society associations, proposed by the high committee formed by the Ministry of Social solidarity. This meeting will be held next Tuesday, September 24th 2013, 11 am sharp at the Organization’s headquarter. 

This meeting is considered one of the series of meetings convened by EOHR to discuss the proposed articles of the new civil society organizations’ law; this came on the light of forming a high committee by the Ministry of Social Solidarity to prepare a draft law of civil society organizations that will fulfill the demands of different political powers and civil society associations, as well a law that will guarantee the right of assembly and organization.

Mr. Hafez Abu Seada, President of EOHR, explained that forming a high committee to prepare a draft law by the Ministry of the Social Solidarity reflects a change in the dominant doctrine of the state leaders regarding issuing laws that are in compliance with certain interests.

Abu Seada further added that civil society organizations play a vital role in the achievement of democracy in Egypt especially during this critical transitional period, and in modifying the Egyptian legislations in a way that is compatible with international conventions and agreements of human rights.
