If you recall the previous fiasco when it was cancelled at the last minute:


Parliament disagreed with the PM and Cabinet that DST was needed, so voted 
against passing the law!
The current situation appears to be better, but review and debate of even bills 
with agreement can take weeks.

Found a site with info:

Click issue for "Thu. 02 Mar., 2023" -




Find in page "daylight savings time" for other discussion 30-40% down.

[It appears many gov.eg. links work only within Egypt see:


explains why my attempts to view pages fail, so someone local will have to send 
us a copy of the law, or better a translation of a copy!
Many archive.org English links stop in 2016, Arabic at the end of 2020.]

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis              Calgary, Alberta, Canada
