Representatives of various parties attending the national dialogue’s political track session asserted the necessity of providing new means to encourage citizens to participate in the electoral process.
The national dialogue’s political session kicked off Sunday to discuss the law of exercising the political rights.
MP Hossam El Kholy, representative of of Mustaqbal Watan Party, said the exercise of political rights law is very good one, but there should be a better way for its enforcement.
He said the political process aims at coming up with results that express the citizens’ views and their beliefs.
Meanwhile, MP Mahmoud Salah, representative of Homat Al Watan Party, said some reservations on the law will be addressed during the session to ensure a better voting process in the coming elections.
Parties should play more influential role in the coming phase to urge citizens especially women and youths to join the electoral process, he explained.
Also, Chairman of Al Itihad Party Reda Saqr suggested amending Article No.26 of the Political Exercise Law to allow more election donations for natural persons and parties along with applying the maximum limit for the electoral campaigns.
