New President in Egypt

Jump to last reply

Don't know how many of you are following Egyptian politics these days, but some interesting things have been going on and they all seem as if they will be good for tourists and foreigners.
Last Thursday the Judicial Court made an announcement that disbanded the Egyptian Parliament. The main impact on us is that the majority of members that were from the Muslim Brotherhood have lost their jobs with the Parliament (as did all the others), but this means that there is little to no chance of having both a President from the Muslim Brotherhood AND a Parliament that has a majority of MB members that could support each other with no questions asked, and do what they liked ....which we feared would impact tourism greatly.
Today and tomorrow the country will elect their first President since the 25 January Revolution. We have a choice of a man that represents the Muslim Brotherhood and another that worked with/for Mubarak in the past.
Either way security should return in full force to Egypt and safety (or perceived safety by those thinking to come for a visit) should be back as before - God Willing.

Keep following this thread and I'll try to keep you informed of the progress as we know it.
AND - keep your fingers crossed ! :)
