Let's have a Committee!

Post by newcastle »

Egypt loves committees.

Any project requires a committee, which requisitions a detailed Report, which the committee then refers to the Cabinet, Prime Minister and President. More often than not, implementation of the committee's recommendations is then placed in the hands of a State Enterprise or the Ministry of Defence.

Apparently, implementation is not going smoothly in some cases. So.......

"Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi issued a decree on Thursday establishing a committee to study state projects that have stalled, state agency MENA announced.
According to MENA, former prime minister Ibrahim Mahlab, the current presidential aide for national and strategic projects, will head the committee.

Members will include the president’s advisor for fighting corruption, the president’s advisor for urban planning, and the minister of defence’s advisor for land and projects’ legal affairs.

According to the presidential decree, which was published in the official state gazette on Thursday, the recommendations of the committee will be sent to the cabinet.

The committee will also present a monthly report directly to the president.

Since February 2016, Mahlab has headed the national committee to redeem state land that has been illegally acquired by private investors."

The makeup of this new committee is interesting.....comprising those in charge of national & strategic projects, fighting corruption, urban planning etc. And some bod from the Ministry of Defence. They will deliver a report on why they are failing in the implementation of .....national & strategic planning, fighting corruption, urban planning etc....much of which presumably involves the Ministry of Defence.

Should make for a interesting round of navel-gazing :lol:

It was deemed as an illegal gathering by the new ruler, so was disbanded, which just left the two that were the only ones attending anyways, the t shirt two.
