The meeting of the 19-member board of trustees tomorrow, which will be its sixth since it was formed in late June, will also consider recent proposals submitted by some members to re-divide some of the committees, Rashwan added in a statement on Friday.

During its last meeting on Monday, the board announced the selection of six rapporteurs and assistant rapporteurs for its political, social and economic track committees.

The board had agreed earlier on the formation of 15 subcommittees under the three tracks to manage the dialogue.

There are seven subcommittees under the economic track: Inflation and Price Increases; Public Debt, Deficit Spending, and Financial Reformation; Public Investment Priorities and State Ownership Politics; Private Investment (local and global); Industry and Production; Agriculture and Food Safety; and Social Justice.

There are three subcommittees under the political track -- the Exercise of Political Rights and the Parliamentary Representation and Political Parties; Municipalities; and Human Rights and Public Freedoms.

Meanwhile, there are five subcommittees under the social track: Education; Health; Housing; Family and Social Cohesion; and Culture and National Identity.

The board of trustees had received the nominations of 350 names for rapporteurs and assistant rapporteurs, according to a statement released by Rashwan on Monday.

The general coordinator explained that six names were chosen for these tasks after a review of nominees' CVs, political affiliations, and specialisations.

Those chosen are former youth and sports minister Ali Eddin Helal as a rapporteur for the political track; former youth and sports minister Khaled Abdel-Aziz as a rapporteur for the social track; and former finance minister Ahmed Galal as a rapporteur for the economic track.

The board of trustees will issue a detailed statement to the local and international press and media following the conclusion of tomorrow's meeting, Rashwan added.
