The Egyptian cabinet has approved Wednesday two new legislations, a law to counter-terrorism and another law to regulate parliamentary elections.

Minister of transitional justice Ibrahim El-Heneidy added that the cabinet implemented a request by the Supreme Constitutional Court to give its judges a longer period to rule on appeals against elections results.

These new laws would go into effect once signed by the president as per Egyptian law.
