  El- Sadat warns of owning or sharing the Board of Directors of the Central Bank in the private companies which operates in the field of banking  
  Mr. Anwar Esmat El-Sadat – Founders’ Representative of RDP- asked the cabinet to take the necessary measures regarding the fact that the members of the Board of Directors of the Central Bank should not have offices or private companies operating in the same field under the control of the central bank.
El-Sadat warned of the dangers which may occur based on the aforesaid, because of the disappearance of equality, as it opens the door to opportunities for corruption, profiteering and conflicts of interest to the advantage of the Board of Directors of the Central Bank. Because they may benefit by virtue of their position from the available information they have about all financial issues, investment and sales quotas for government contributions for each bank, they can make that through their own companies and offices, this will lead to the detriment of public interest.
