Egypt: SIS Announces Activities to Promote Constitution Awareness Campaign

The State Information Service (SIS) will implement a number of activities across Egyptian governorates within the framework of the constitution awareness campaign, SIS Chairman Ambassador Salah Abdul-Sadek said.

He noted that two seminars under the title "Constitutional amendments" and "Rights and Freedoms" will be held at the SIS headquarters in Cairo on Sunday 5/1/2014, in addition to other seminars to be organized in different governorates that will discuss the rights of the farmers and workers in the new constitution as well as informing the people about the importance of taking part in the upcoming referendum.

The ambassador said that the awareness campaign, which commenced in last September, will continue until the referendum takes place mid January, highlighting that the campaign aims at spreading awareness among the Egyptian people of all the constitutional articles.

Last month, the SIS has printed several copies of the constitution to be distributed to citizens in Egypt and abroad. Articles of the new charter have also been taped and posted on the SIS website for the blind people.
