A number of Egyptian MPs recently said that Parliament would discuss a draft law to revoke the Egyptian nationality for those involved in terrorist acts, or involved in an association, organization, gang or any entity that seeks to “harm the public order of the state.”

Numerous local media outlets quoted MPs who explained that the draft law intends to strip the Egyptian nationality from those involved in terrorism.

Among them was MP Abdel-Moneim al-Alimi, a member of the constitutional and legislative affairs committee of the House of Representatives, who told Al-Bawba news that amendments to the nationality law allow the state to take necessary measures to withdraw an individual’s nationality in accordance with the law.
