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.
