Egypt's parliament convened on Monday for its first plenary session after a 25-day recess during the presidential election race.

Members of parliament are due to discuss a range of parliamentary business including several draft laws, according to Al-Ahram Arabic's parliament correspondent.

There will be debate on a draft law regulating the National Council of Women, a bill to amend articles in the 1990 Eminent Domain law, and the draft law for Science, Technology and Innovation Incentives.

The Ride-Hailing Apps bill regulating the work of companies such as Uber and Careem will also be up for discussion.
