Egypt’s parliament will start its fourth legislative session in its parliamentary term on Tuesday 2 October, in accordance with presidential decree last week.

The decree, published in the Egyptian state’s official gazette on Sunday, President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi issued an order asking the Parliament to convene next Tuesday for its fourth legislative session.

According to the Egyptian constitution, each elected parliament has five legislative sessions, with each session lasting a minimum of nine months.

The parliament convened for the first time in January 2016, ending a four year legislative vacuum brought about by political turmoil and legislative amendments to the parliament’s election laws.
