Justice Ministry, MCIT Ink Two Cooperation Protocols

The Minister of Justice Omar Marwan and the Minister of Communications and Information Technology Amr Talaat have witnessed, through videoconference, the signing of two cooperation protocols between the Ministry of Justice and the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT).

This comes within the framework of the State's efforts for accelerating digital transformation, in general, and developing property registration and notarization mechanisms, in particular. It also comes in line with the Ministry of Justice’s plan for easing access of citizens to property registration and notarization services, and with MCIT efforts for building the digital Egypt and transforming Egypt Post to an outlet for rendering digital government services.

The first protocol included adding 79 postal outlets, nationwide, to provide property registration and notarization services in several governorates. This protocol complements the protocol inked between the two ministries on January 30, 2019, enabling 30 postal outlets to citizens, thus making a total of 109 outlets nationwide.

The second protocol deals with automating property registration and notarization offices. This is achieved through developing their applications and the services provided through notarization following registration, adding translation services, linking property registration offices with other government entities and developing the first phase of the agricultural land registry project. This is in addition to developing the urban physical registry, improving the work system in main notarization offices and sub-offices and developing the human and technical capital in notarization offices.

Marwan stated that the protocols are part of the fruitful and constructive cooperation between the Ministry of Justice and MCIT, for attaining the Ministry of Justice’s vision pertaining to providing notarization services on a wider scale at both geographical and technological levels. This is in addition to developing, automating and linking these services to other agencies and authorities through the registration and notarization e-portal that enables access of citizens to registration and notarization services, thus ensuring rendering high quality services to citizens and protecting their properties, to encourage investment and drive economic growth.

For his part, the ICT Minister said that the protocols target enhancing cooperation between the two ministries and completing the joint projects that aim to promote the use of ICT to develop the work system at property registration and notarization offices. This is achieved through developing notarization services, enabling new platforms for rendering services, linking with digital maps and appeal committees, creating an analysis system and issuing statistical reports.

Talaat also highlighted that rendering registration and notarization services through Postal Services Centers aims to enable access of citizens to these services through different outlets, especially as Postal Services Centers are spread nationwide.

The protocol was signed by the Assistant Minister of Justice for Real Estate Registration Affairs Ashraf Rizk, representing the Ministry of Justice, the Deputy ICT Minister for Administrative Development, Digital Transformation and Automation Khaled El Attar and the Acting Chairman of the Egyptian National Post Organization (ENPO) Sherif Farouk.
