Egyptian state TV has the exclusive right to broadcast Parliament sessions in accordance to Law No. 13 of 1979, said head of the news sector at Maspero Safaa Hegazy.
Hegazy described the request by a private satellite channel to broadcast Parliament sessions exclusively in return for LE100 million as "irresponsible talk".
During an interview with 90 Minutes program on Mehwar channel Wednesday evening, Hegazy said that an amendment to the law should be carried out first before giving private channels the right to broadcast parliament sessions.
