Egypt’s Anti-Corruption Law Awaits Ratification

Deputy Minister for Political Development Ali al-Selmi declared yesterday that the current Egyptian government is expected to ratify in the next days an anti-corruption law that restricts the political rights of individuals convicted for corruption-related crimes.

Following the revolution that led to the end of Hosni Mubarak’s rule in the country, the law was conceived as an attempt to keep Mubarak’s former allies, many of which are now facing corruption charges, of running in the next elections for Parliament, to take place on November 28th.
