Egypt: Mansour Probes Pensioners' Crisis

President Adly Mansour assigned Sakina Fouad, President's Advisor to Women's Affairs, to contact Al-Badry Farghali, Head of the Pensioners' Union, to draft a report on the crisis of the pensioners and the governmental efforts to solve it.

For his part, Farghali said that he would hand over the report to the president's advisor to refer it to the president.

Farghali said that the Union would call in the report for raising the minimum limit of pensions as was the case with the minimum wages limit and making an inventory of the volume of the social insurance funds.
