A paradoxical executive and legislative authority and the shadow of guardianship of Al Azhar remains:
The House of Representatives would be ready to discuss new amendments submitted by the government to the “terrorism” law to include new articles and penalties. The proposed amendments prohibit renting apartments without notifying the Ministry of Interior within 24 hours of concluding the contract or housing them. Article 33 stipulates that anyone who leases a property or unit without notifying the police department or station in whose department the property is located shall be punished with imprisonment for a period of no less than a year, and a fine of not less than five thousand pounds, and not exceeding 10,000 pounds, or one of these two penalties.
According to the bill, it would oblige the criminal court to include seizing the real estate as a result of the conviction ruling for a terrorist offense. The amendments recognize the Public Prosecution authority or the competent investigation authority to close the places of manufacture or design of weapons that were used in any terrorist crime and to set controls for organizing a notification mechanism for renting real estate as a preemptive step to prevent the threat of terrorism and to decide the appropriate punishment for those who violate this obligation.
- The House of Representatives is engaged with the widespread societal controversy that resulted in the publication of a draft attributed to the government of the Personal Status Law, by referring the bill to the Constitutional and Legislative Affairs Committee in the House for study, or by confirming that the published draft does not express the final situation of the government and that the latter has not sent its final draft of the law to Parliament yet . The articles of the proposed law have caused a societal controversy between rejection and acceptance of its provisions, at a time when the government represented by the Ministries of Justice or Parliamentary Affairs, did not deny until the date of writing the bulletin whether the draft was related to it or not.
The cabinet approved finally the bill related to the issuance of the Personal Status law on the last January 20, after reconsidering it by the cabinet and avoiding the remarks that were made on a number of articles during the previous meeting of the Cabinet. After that, the government is expected to present it to the House of Representatives. The bill includes 194 articles and provisions related to organizing engagement, marriage contract, divorce, annulment and separation, and woman-sought divorce, in addition to alimony,custody, inheritance, guardianship and trusteeship for Muslims. In addition, provisions for litigation procedures in matters of personal status and the creation of a fund to support and care for the family to provide resources for implementation of Judicial rulings on alimony as well as a section on penalties.
Representative, Diaa Al Din Dawood, member of the Legislative Committee announced that his committee didn’t receive the bill till now, however he expects that the Speaker of the House of Representative would refer the bill to the Committee in order to study it and give its legal opinion on its provisions as soon as possible. In addition, Mohamed Abu Hamed, previous MPs who previously presented a personal status bill, said that the published copy repeats the texts of Al Azhar bill on Personal Status and its texts are strict and reactionary. He added that this bill gives women guardianship and permits her with her right to get married, however at the same time it gives her father and brother and others the right to appeal on her marriage contract under the pretext of inequality. Abu Hamed added that the government and Al Azhar had suspended the issuance of the new personal status law over the past five years, explaining that the Senate was established for issues that need community consensus and that it should conduct a community dialogue on reaching a consensual draft that guarantees the rights of women, men and children in the family, according to Reality and practical requirements, not a narrow interpretation of Sharia principles.
Sheikh of Al Azhar, Ahmed Al Tayeb, confirmed in a televised interview in January 2019, that Al Azhar will not leave the personal status law to anyone except for religion’s scientists. He added that Al Azhar is not a legislative body and has no involvement in legislation, however when it comes to laws related to Islamic Sharia, the matter wouldn’t be left to anyone but scientists.
As a result, the Legislative Committee in the House of Representatives, headed by Counselor Ibrahim Al Henidy approved to postpone law no.186 of 2020 related to Real State Registration till June 30, 2023. Al Henidy confirmed that “the House of Representatives interacts with public issues and feels the citizen’s sufferings and can’t do otherwise” The head of the Legislative Committee explained that the proposals for postponement came after the appearance of problems related to implementing the amendments of Real State Registration law and its negative repercussions on the Egyptian street..

The Ennahda march is meaningless, journalists were assaulted and citizens are discontent:
It is a march by a number of party members with a large crowd of supporters on Saturday, February 27, 2021, at Mohamed V Street. Analysts and politicians didn’t understand until this moment the main goal of the march. Is it a protest or a carnival or just a mere show of power, especially that the Country is living in a state of instability? The head of the movement, Rached Ghannouchi, tried to clarify this goal through a statement he issued on Saturday 27 February 2021, in which he confirmed that this march comes to confirm the adherence of Tunisian women and Tunisians to the choice of the leading democratic state and its elected institutions.
This march angered many citizens, as we witnessed not too long ago the suppression of many protests and the detention of many lawyers and youths. Today, the Ennahda exerts its influence and makes marches without any disturbance and without the slightest respect for health protocol and physical distancing.
