Amid rejection from the labour community, the parliamentary Labour Committee asserted that they are working to approve and pass the controversial civil service law.
Mohamed Wahaballah, head of the committee, said that efforts are being made inside parliament to approve the law owing to its importance and the positive effect on millions of Egyptian workers.
The parliament will discuss the law with representatives from the ministries of Planning and Syndicates on Wednesday and Thursday.
During the session, a representative from the Ministry of Planning said the need for the Civil Service Law will not go away.
Wael Tawfiq, a member of the Tadamon Coalition, said that the refusal of the law is unconditional and the labour movements are eager to confront this law.
The movement hosted a press conference on Wednesday to decide on its future strategy.
The civil service law was initially rejected in February for a number of reasons and due to its unconstitutionality. Its first article states that certain governmental authorities will be exempted from implementing the law.
It was resubmitted to parliament later in February, following harsh amendments by the ministries of Finance and Planning to prohibit financial bonuses.
The government’s draft law, which overhauls the system of salaries, bonuses and promotions across state institutions and authorities, was the only one out of more than 300 laws to be rejected by parliament in February.
