Forget about amending the Protest law in the House of Representatives

Some people had hopes in the past two years that the controversial Protest law would be amended in a way or another in the Egyptian House of Representatives.
Well, surprise .. it won't be amended in this House of Representatives because the members won't

review the laws issued before Constitution 2014 was passed.

The controversial infamous Protest led to the imprisonment of thousands of Egyptian youth since November 2013.
It is currently being challenged in front of the Supreme Constitutional court.
I remember some people from the so-called Democratic branch in the government or the regime in the media kept saying "guys, wait till the upcoming parliament as it will fix that protest law", "Instead of demanding its cancellation, wait till the parliament and it will be amended".
Already as of January 10, the House of Representatives and its 19 subcommittees will review 340 laws issued from January 18, 2014 to the end of 2015 according to the Constitution. Oh yes, no one paid attention to this constitutional fact.
Here is a very nice general and summarized breakdown for those 340 laws by Ziad Bahaa El-Din in Ahram Online.
By way , House of Representatives Speaker Ali Abdel Aal stated that there would be no live broadcast for the sessions of the parliament while reviewing the laws issued in Post-Constitution 2014.
Oh yes, we are not going to see any live feed from the House of Representatives in these 15 days till the Post-Constitution 2014 laws are passed.
