Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi has approved a law regulating ride-hailing apps such as Uber and Careem, the official gazette reported on Sunday.

The legislation was passed by parliament in May despite concerns among some lawmakers.

Many Egyptians who complain about taxi services, including drivers who refuse to turn on their meters or their air conditioning during the summer heat, had already switched to ride-sharing apps such as Uber and UAE-based Careem.
