CAIRO - 25 February 2020: President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi has emphasized African constitutional courts' role in developing their respective countries as main pillars for stability and protecting societies by entrenching the rule of law against attempts to take down states.
On Monday, Sisi received heads of constitutional and high courts in Africa as part of the fourth conference Egypt holds for the courts in the continent. The presidential spokesperson said the president is keen on cooperation and exchange of expertise amongst Africa judicial institutions.
The 2020 conference focused on the impact of digital transformation on the rule of law and the role of judiciary in fighting corruption. Sisi also noted at the end of the conference that judicial constitutions have a role to play in countering terrorism and extremist ideology by creating legal framework to deal with such issues.
