  El-Sadat: "Mubarak's regime squandered the rights of the workers"  
  Mr. Anwar Essmat El-Sadat – Founders Representative of RDP- asked for developing a legislative framework which guarantees the rights of workers, as well as the trade union system to achieve its independence and effectiveness in representing their interests and to ensure the interaction of the worker with the organizations of investors, in order to strengthen the capacity of the Egyptian production and its presence in the domestic and foreign markets.
El-Sadat accused the former regime that it had squandered the rights of Egyptian Workers, based on the fact that the institutions of the public and private sectors ignored provisions, labor laws and governmental decisions regarding the rights of workers.
There was no balance between the interests of workers and the interests of society. Moreover, the needed institutional and legislative structures to establish mechanisms of the market and to encourage investment and production, were not developed.
