In an unprecedented initiative, the parliament Human Rights Committee petitioned the parliament to pass a decision that presses the government to lift emergency laws, release all acquitted prisoners, and allow parties to be unrestrictedly launched.
 
In its meeting yesterday, opposition MPs of the committee demanded speeding up the political reform process that needs to be activated and promoted by further tangible steps instead of mere appealing slogans repeated by the government.
 
The deputy of the Muslim Brotherhood’s parliamentary bloc, Hussein Ibrahem, called on the parliament to take the initiative in this respect. He criticized the government statement saying it does not handle issues of political reform; a matter that defies people’s will. In its reply on the statement, Ibrahem requested the committee to enlist three recommendations; to end the long-standing emergency laws which are the source of all evils, as he termed. According to the Brotherhood’s MP, emergency laws incurred Egypt huge loses and dragged it backward in terms of political reform and freedom. 
 
Ibrahem, in addition, underlined the need for releasing the political detainees who were granted release rulings but ignored by the government; a step that breaches laws and tarnishes the dignity of Egyptian citizens. The third recommendation concerns parties. As long launching parties is restricted, the political sphere will come to a demise, he remarked.
 
The Human Rights Committee approved the three suggestions. The committee chairman said the parliament should sanction these vital requests whereas the committee listed them among its fundamental recommendations.
 
It is worth mentioning that president Mubarak has pledged in his electoral platform to cancel the emergency laws; a commitment that did not put in motion yet. Nevertheless, the Prime Minister claimed that emergency laws will not be abolished, adding that similar laws do exist in the US.
