The move was prompted by the opposition Labor Party, and was passed after the government abandoned efforts to get Conservative lawmakers to block it.  The investigation is piling pressure on the conservative prime minister, who was fined 50 Egyptian pounds ($66) by police last week for attending a party in his office in June 2020.
