The ESMP was formulated as non governmental organization. It is non prophet able non political society.
The ESMP was established on 1981 and included 30 members only. This small No. was enough to register the ESMP in the official authorities in EGYPT. Since then the No. of members is gradually increasing.
According to the local Egyptian regulations 1/3 of the board should be dropped and new members should be elected.
Every 6 years a new board should be completely changed.
The present board was elected starting 2003 due to the issue of new law for the NGOs.
