At the launch of Egypt’s 1st national human rights strategy on Saturday, President Abdel Fattah El Sisi announced that 2022 is a year of civil society.
 
“The launch of the first national strategy for human rights is a luminous point in Egypt’s history. Egypt continues exerting efforts to ensure equality in rights and duties among the people,” said President Sisi, highlighting how Egypt adopted many initiatives of Takaful and Karma (solidarity and dignity) and Haya Karima (Decent Life) to improve the lives of citizens.
 
“Egypt is one of the first countries that drafted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR),” he added, affirming that Egypt’s vision for human rights is based on a number of principles.
 
President Sisi also added that Egypt’s Constitution achieved a paradigm shift by consolidating the principles of citizenship and equality, saying “Egypt has a national structure that supports and promotes human rights” as several laws concerning the political practice, elections, and civil work have been passed.
 
He confirmed that the participation of the civil society in raising awareness of human rights is indispensable, saying “awareness is one of the most important elements for human rights.”
 
Egypt pays special attention to promoting the right to participate in political and public life, said President Sisi, who affirmed that the country has taken care of young people to develop their capabilities and empower them.
