CAIRO – 11 November 2020: In its weekly meeting, the Cabinet issued decrees on bad weather, Black Friday, and governmental headquarters.
The Cabinet granted the governors the authority to suspend the operation of schools in occurrence of bad weather, if needed.
The Cabinet ordered the shutdown of stores that do not abide by COVID-19 preventive measures on Black Friday for three days.
The Cabinet urged the total evacuation of governmental headquarters after the government moves to the New Administrative Capital mid-2021.
Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouli praised the smooth voting process that took place last week during the second phase of balloting in 2020 House of Representative Elections thanking all institutions involved.
In a different context, the prime minister thanked the Northern Military Zone for aiding Alexandria's municipal authority to mitigate the possible negative impact of heavy rains that occurred earlier this week. That is because the Egyptian Armed Forces offered vehicles that suck water on the streets.
Madbouli clarified that rainwater mainly amassed in slums, which proves the state's righteousness about providing the dwellers of those areas with alternative fully-furnished residential units in planned housing projects free of charge.
In the coming few days, Alexandria and Matrouh governorates will experience heavy rains and fierce winds, the prime minister pointed out.
