President Sisi orders gov’t to drop appeal against mandatory annual pension increases

President Abdel Fattah Al Sisi issued an order on Thursday for the Madbouly government to drop its appeal against a Supreme Administrative Court ruling enshrining pensioners’ right to an annual increase in their pensions, according to an Ittihadiya statement. The matter will now be referred to the Council of State (Maglis El Dawla) for a final decision, and Al Sisi ordered that all outstanding pension payments be settled through the FY19/20 budget. The lawsuit was originally filed in Mar 2018 by the Pensioners Union, according to Al Ahram.
