The National Council for Women (NCW) has voiced gratitude to President Abdel Fattah El Sisi, who ordered an increase of female representation at the Senate.

Sisi had directed that 20, instead of 10 seats be allocated for women at the upper house of parliament, said NCW chairperson Maya Morsy Sunday.
Morsy, in a statement today, said she is proud of and grateful for that important decision, which, she believed, is yet another gain under the leadership of President Sisi.
The decision reflects the important role played by women in enriching the political life in Egypt, she noted.
