Egypt removed the clause on a “government of technocrats” in the Gaza proposal.

Egypt removed the clause on a “government of technocrats” in the Gaza proposal.

Egypt has abandoned the clause on the formation of a “government of technocrats” in the Gaza Strip in its proposal to end the war and post-conflict settlement in the enclave, Mustafa Bakri, a member of the Egyptian House of Representatives (lower house of parliament) said.

Earlier, the Asharq TV channel reported that Egypt presented to Israel and the Palestinian Hamas movement its proposal to end the war in the Gaza Strip and post-conflict development, consisting of three stages. As part of the Egyptian initiative in the Gaza Strip, it was proposed to form a government of technocrats, which would oversee humanitarian aid issues, the process of restoring the enclave and the preparation of general presidential elections in Palestine.

“The proposal included the formation of a Palestinian government of technocrats to govern Gaza after the war, but there were many objections to this, including from the Palestinian Authority,” Bakri said.

However, he added that objections to the formation of a government of technocrats came not only from the Palestinian Authority, but also from other parties.

“Hamas could be part of this government, which the Israeli side objected to, and this point (about a government of technocrats) was canceled,” Bakri said.


The MP said that the Israeli side had been informed of the Egyptian proposal, “but so far there has been no positive reaction.”
