Egypt’s Minister of Communications and Information Technology Amr Talaat and Supreme Constitutional Court President Saeed Marei have signed a cooperation protocol to complete the automation and development of the latter institution’s work system.
Marei said that cooperation with the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology is important for digitising and developing the court’s work system using modern technological means.
In a press release issued by the Ministry, on Tuesday, Marei indicated that the Supreme Constitutional Court is keen to keep pace with the Egyptian state’s modernisation process. He added that, like all other state institutions, the court is pursuing the renaissance project as set out by the Egyptian state.
For his part, Talaat said that the protocol is a continuation of the fruitful cooperation with the Supreme Constitutional Court, and builds on the projects that have been accomplished to use the latest technological systems. These have contributed to developing and modernising the internal electronic work system to reach the Digital Constitutional Court.
The minister added that the protocol aims to develop the use of electronic transactions in the Supreme Constitutional Court, and develop the process of electronic litigation.
It also aims to raise the quality of digital services provided by achieving digital communication with the various state institutions, in addition to documenting and preserving their heritage digitally.
This will contribute to making information available on its website, while working in parallel in the path of developing the technical skills of court workers in all fields of information technology.
The protocol’s term of operation will extend over three years, and will have a scope of work that includes the implementation of a number of projects. These include the completion of the electronic case management project, which aims to develop litigation mechanisms using modern technologies. This will in turn reduce dependence on the paper environment, shorten the time for adjudication of cases, and facilitate the means of litigation.
