El-Shaer is the Deputy of Health Parliamentary Committee
On today’s vote to elect members of the parliamentary committees, the Muslim Brotherhood’s representative, Akram el-Shaer, was chosen as the deputy of the Health committee. In fact, this election was postponed for ten days due to disputes inside the holding-parliamentary bloc of the National Democratic Party.
The NDP and the parliamentary chairmanship attempted to rig the vote outcome, desiring to exclude all MB’s representatives from committees. Therefore, the result announcement delayed for 45 minutes. Large-scale talks, including security element, over the result preceded the outcome declaration. However, the result came out showing el-Shaer the deputy after taking 17 votes out of 29 of the members of the Health Committee.
Due to the NDP’s mobilization, the six fielded candidates of the MB’s bloc failed in obtaining any position in the other six committees.
