Referred to Senate (sub)committee

Introduced a week before Egypt’s presidential elections, this resolution expressed concern about intimidation and detention of credible opponents to Egyptian pres. Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, who was an overwhelming favorite for re-election. It also noted a lack of progress in Egypt’s efforts to support human rights, civil liberties, and rule of law; and encouraged the president to appoint an assistant secretary of state for near eastern affairs and a U.S. ambassador to Egypt.
