« Historique », une « mascarade » : les élections en Égypte ne laissent pas indifférent. Jamais l'intérêt pour un scrutin n'a été aussi grand, de Suez à Assiout, en passant par Le Caire. En dehors des urnes, les choses ont-elles vraiment changé ? L'utilisation excessive des tribunaux militaires est bien supérieure à celle de l'ère Moubarak. Ces dernières semaines, les forces de sécurité n'ont pas hésité à faire usage d'une force démesurée face aux manifestants de Tahrir. Comment les opposants vivent-ils cette période ? Comment s'organisent les blogueurs ? Pourquoi l'information reste-t-elle en danger ?
Au cours de l'émission, Amal Haouet sera en skype de Tunis, pour parler du buzz méditerranéen de la semaine : laboursedelacorruption.com, le premier site satirique qui cote en bourse la corruption, notamment celle qui sévit en Tunisie.

Invités :
- Samir Abdallah, réalisateur du documentaire « Au Caire de la révolution »
- Hicham Gad, acteur
- Lucie Morillon, responsable du « Bureau nouveaux médias », de Reporters sans frontières
- Alexandre Buccianti, correspondant TV5 MONDE (en duplex du Caire)

Présentation : Mohamed Kaci.

Egypte : 2e tour des législatives, rude bataille en vue après la percée des Islamistes

Egypte : 2e tour des législatives, rude bataille en vue après la percée des Islamistes | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

"Les Egyptiens ont commencé à voter lundi pour le deuxième tour des législatives, dans lequel les mouvements islamistes, en particulier les Frères musulmans, tenteront d'améliorer un score déjà écrasant. (...)

Une rude bataille est attendue lundi et mardi entre libéraux, grands perdants du premier tour, et les islamistes mais aussi au sein même du camp conservateur pour la quasi-totalité des sièges attribués au scrutin uninominal.

Un duel serré est ainsi prévu entre les Frères musulmans et les salafistes sur une vingtaine de sièges, en particulier à Alexandrie (nord). C'est dans cette ville qu'est né cet hiver le parti Al-Nour, qui a créé la surprise en raflant 24,3% des voix et talonnant les Frères musulmans (36,6%)." (TV5 Monde)

Lawyer, candidates claim discrepancy in election results

Lawyer, candidates claim discrepancy in election results | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

"Less than 24 hours before run-offs of the first round, candidates were contesting the results announced by the judicial committee supervising the parliamentary elections, citing inaccurate results that do not correspond with the number of votes.In the Maadi-Helwan constituency, where journalist Mostafa Bakry was announced the winner of the professional seat with 374,550 votes and Ramadan Omar Salem the winner of the workers seat with 428,983 votes, the results do not align with the recorded number of valid votes.

Lawyer Khaled Ali, along with other lawyers, filed a complaint against the results. “We are not appealing the results, we are appealing the vote-counting process,” he explained.

“There have been imaginary numbers that exceed the actual count by 130,000,” he explained." (Safaa Abdoun /Daily News Egypt)

"The messiah lets his worshippers down", by Mohssen Arishie

"The messiah lets his worshippers down", by Mohssen Arishie | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

"Mohamed ElBaradie, the ex-chief of the International Atomic Energy Agency, has squandered a rare opportunity he was offered by the military council – his main opponent – to form a salvation government and convince the Egyptian people that he is the messiah sent to Egypt to save its people from Mubarak’s sins. (...)

ElBaradei is one of those political activists who have been leading the bitching about the military council. He is also trying to increase the pressure on the generals to return to their barracks on the borders and transfer power to a civil government.
If he had accepted the epic task of forming a salvation government, ElBaradei would have had a great opportunity to substantiate his allegations about the generals if they attempted to intervene in his cabinet.
It seems that ElBaradei hasn’t got a plan to improve the nation’s economy and reduce poverty, offering ordinary citizens a better future." (Mohssen Arishie - The Egyptian Gazette)

Egypt’s reformist, presidential hopeful ElBaradei says liberals ‘decimated’ in vote

Egypt’s reformist, presidential hopeful ElBaradei says liberals ‘decimated’ in vote | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

"Egypt’s top reformist leader said Sunday the liberal youth behind the country’s uprising have been “decimated” in parliamentary elections dominated by Islamists and expressed concern about the rise of hard-line religious elements advocating extremist ideas such as banning women from driving.

Mohamed ElBaradei, a Nobel Prize laureate and possible presidential candidate, said he hopes moderate Islamists will rein in the extremists and send a reassuring message to the world that Egypt will not go down an ultraconservative religious path.

“The youth feel let down. They don’t feel that any of the revolution’s goals have been achieved,” ElBaradei told The Associated Press in an interview on the same day electoral authorities announced that Islamist parties captured an overwhelming majority of votes in the first round of elections last week. “They got decimated,” he said, adding the youth failed to unify and form “one essential critical mass.” (al-Arabiya news)

Aliaa ElMahdy Revisited : As the Real ElMahdy Says She's in Hiding, Pakistani and Tunisian Actresses Try to Gain PR By (Sort of) Daring Photos | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

"I do, of course, recognize it takes a certain courage even for an actress to defy the conventions of her society. But I suspect their motives are pretty much aimed at promoting their careers. Aliaa ElMahdy's daring, whatever you may think of her judgment, is of a totally different scale, and may have denied her a career. (...

While I don't want to emphasize her story overmuch, or fuel some of the more prurient discussions out there, she does represent an unprecedented defiance and transgression of the rules." (Michael Collins Dunn/Middle East Institute)

L' Islam rigido dei Salafiti : Un pericolo per il futuro dell' Egitto

"Dopo aver passato mesi a misurare dichiarazioni e passi politici dei Fratelli Musulmani, l' Europa e il mondo hanno scoperto i salafiti. Dai raid tunisini contro le rivendite di alcolici alle parole di fuoco del candidato egiziano al-Shahat contro i romanzi di Nagib Mahfuz, i rigidi tradizionalisti salafiti parevano però dare voce a una forza minoritaria, eccentrica, e in fondo inefficace dal punto di vista politico. I numeri del primo turno elettorale egiziano, se confermati, parlano tutt' altra lingua: il partito salafita al-Nour è una delle principali forze politiche del Paese. Emanazione diretta del wahhabismo saudita, il salafismo contemporaneo proclama una rigida adesione ai dettati coranici e soprattutto a ciò che fece e disse il Profeta Muhammad."

For Egypt’s gays, sexual harassment is an untold problem

For Egypt’s gays, sexual harassment is an untold problem | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

"Though an ongoing societal problem, more and more women in Egypt have come forward in recent years to address the issue of sexual harassment and violence in their daily lives. Taboos have been tackled through grassroots activism, and women have worked to engage a constructive public discourse on the issue.However, another group– largely ignored and demonized in much of Egyptian society– suffers from untold instances of sexual abuse as well.

For Egypt’s gay population, sexual harassment is a daily struggle that has gone largely unreported." (Robert Dolan/Bikya Masr)

"Egyptians must refrain from claiming that Islamic trends, who oppose certain kinds of tourism, won the parliamentary elections because 80 percent of the electoral districts will hold runoff elections, said Egyptian Minister of Tourism Mounir Fakhry Abdel Nour.

“The parliament is for all people; everyone must respect it,” said Nour.

“Egypt is promoting itself in foreign markets to revive its tourism after the January 25 Revolution,” Nour continued.

“Our priorities will not change due to the new parliament,” continued Nour, who was asked to stay on as Tourism Minister in the recent ministerial reshuffle." (Mervat Rashad/Youm7)

La démocratie est en marche en Egypte, estime Amr Moussa

La démocratie est en marche en Egypte, estime Amr Moussa | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

"Je suis heureux de voir s'appliquer (...) le processus démocratique, de voir le début de la démocratie", a dit à Reuters Amr Moussa. "On ne peut pas prôner la démocratie et ensuite modifier ou rejeter les résultats" issus du scrutin, a-t-il poursuivi.

Il a cependant souligné qu'il faudrait attendre la conclusion du vote le mois prochain pour avoir une idée précise de la composition du prochain Parlement.

"Face aux résultats des islamistes, (...) il reviendra aux autres forces, aux forces libérales, de se rassembler pour former un front solide au Parlement."

"Je crois que le débat constitutionnel s'annonce difficile. Je ne pense pas qu'un seul parti puisse imposer ses vues et ses principes. La Constitution devra être l'expression d'un consensus à l'issue d'un débat général (...) Le camp libéral, lui aussi, est fort", a souligné Amr Moussa. (Edmund Blair/Le Nouvel Observateur)

A Comparative Look at the Islamists of the Egyptian and Tunisian Revolutions

A Comparative Look at the Islamists of the Egyptian and Tunisian Revolutions | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

"The Muslim Brotherhood, founded in 1928, is the oldest and most organized Islamist force in both Egypt and the larger Islamic world. However, the Brotherhood and Tunisia’s al-Nadha (Renaissance) movement felt the impact of their respective national revolutions in very different ways. The Tunisian movement has not experienced the same degree of internal dissent as the Egyptian Brotherhood, which has witnessed major defections since the Egyptian Revolution, most importantly among it’s youth and elder factions. The elder faction is represented by the Nahda (Renaissance) Party (not to be confused with Tunisia’s al-Nahda), led by Dr. Muhammad Habib. The youth faction is represented by the al-Tayyar al-Masry, founded by young former Brotherhood members. These youth activists participated in the January 25 Revolution against the movement’s advice and are still an active part of the Revolutionary Youth Coalition. They have continued to participate in the sit-ins following the tragic events of November 19th, when the army attempted to remove families of the victims of the Revolution by force, culminating in clashes that left several dozen dead and hundreds injured."

The generals torture : Nada Zatouna’s story

The generals torture : Nada Zatouna’s story | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

"Nada Zatouna is 23 and an independent filmmaker. Originally from Aswan in upper Egypt, she lives in Cairo. She’s been an activist since the Revolution began in January, “involved with Tahrir from the start,” she says, “as an Egyptian citizen, and as an Egyptian woman.” (...)

Police arrested Nada on Sunday, November 20, early in a week of steady fighting in downtown Cairo. The battles began when the military junta’s security forces raided a sit-in occupying Midan Tahrir. After that, police kept raiding Tahrir and seizing activists, using nearby Mohamed Mahmoud Street (which leads from Lazoghly Square and the Ministry of Interio) as a point of entry. Protesters started confronting them along the street. Days of fighting ensued. Tear gas filled the city. Police snipers fired directly in demonstrators’ faces, and many lost their eyes permanently. More than 40 protesters died.

Nada herself was held for over a day, and tortured." (Scott Long's blog)

Et si le deuxième tour des législatives confirmait la victoire des islamistes

"Le premier tour a confirmé une défiance à l’égard des jeunes partis, certes volontaires, mais encore peu structurés face aux Frères musulmans, dotés d’une organisation et d’un réseau de clientèle à travers l’Égypte.

Un tiers des électeurs sont appelés aux urnes ce lundi 5 décembre pour le second tour des législatives égyptiennes. Les Salafistes vont-ils continuer leur percée politique ? Au total 2 Égyptiens sur 3 ont voté pour des Islamistes au premier tour. Les résultats officiels de la première phase des élections législatives donnent le parti des Frères musulmans vainqueur du premier tour qui s’est déroulé dans neuf des vingt sept gouvernorats, le 28 et 29 novembre dernier."

Problems with vote counts, ballots threaten integrity of the results, says activist

"With stamped ballots piled on the desk in front of her, rights activist Ghada Shahbandar, said “As long as I have these obtained in my hands, I cannot trust the final declared results.”Speaking at a press conference held Saturday by the Egyptian Coalition for Election Observation, Shahbandar of the Egyptian Organization for Human Rights highlighted several incidents that demonstrated incompetence by the judicial committee supervising the elections. The stamped ballots, for instance, should only be found inside polling stations and vote counting centers and heavily guarded throughout the process.

“We imagined they'd be ready and they weren't. … The failure of the Supreme Electoral Commission (SEC) has been evident by the late opening of some poll stations, [closed] even until 6 pm on Nov. 28, and even they admitted so,” she said, “This is very clear and terribly affects the electoral results at the end.” (Amir Makar /Daily News Egypt)

Protestors Move Sit-in to the People’s Assembly.

Protestors Move Sit-in to the People’s Assembly. | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

"Ten political blocs, coalitions and revolutionary movements have stated they have moved their sit-in to the People’s Assembly Street next to the Council of Minister’s headquarters.

The groups said taking their protest to the People’s Assembly Street was necessary to prevent what they describes as attempts to bypass the will of the people and let the blood of the martyrs go in vain.

Protestors called for allowing life to return to normal in the Tahrir Square, while reiterating the citizen’s right to demonstrate peacefully.

A statement by the protestors reiterated the main demand of these groups which is the rejection of the formation of the new government and the formation of a national salvation government with full political and economic authorities to administrate the upcoming stage. (25TV)

Brotherhood addresses the West after elections success

Brotherhood addresses the West after elections success | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

"After a sweeping victory in the first phase of parliamentary elections last week, Egypt’s main Islamist movement is sending letters of assurance to Western nations declaring their commitment to democracy and their respect for religious freedoms. (...)

Egypt is home to the biggest religious minority in the Middle East, with Coptic Christians making up around 10 percent of the population. Many in the community are afraid that Islamic forces may seek to impose rigid Islamic laws in the country.

Essam al-Erian, the deputy head of the FJP, has confirmed in an interview with the Associated Press that his party will not seek to impose Islamic values on Egypt.

"We represent a moderate and fair party," Erian said of his Freedom and Justice Party. "We want to apply the basics of Sharia law in a fair way that respects human and personal rights," he said." (al-Masry al-Youm)

Et pas seulement pour le progressiste occidental ayant longtemps refusé cette idée de "l’autocrate comme seul rempart contre le fondamentalisme religieux bla bla bla" : en Tunisie, en Égypte ou même au Maroc ― qui n’aura même pas eu besoin d’en passer par un joli mois de mai un peu agité pour se retrouver propulsé directement en décembre ―, les démocrates locaux ont eux aussi une sacrée gueule de bois."

Egypte : les Frères musulmans veulent se démarquer des encombrants salafistes

Egypte : les Frères musulmans veulent se démarquer des encombrants salafistes | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

"Les Frères musulmans d'Egypte, vainqueurs de la première étape des législatives mais talonnés par les salafistes, cherchent à se démarquer de ces nouveaux venus fondamentalistes qui pourraient grignoter leur électorat et perturber d'éventuelles alliances centristes. (...)

... selon les analystes, les Frères musulmans, organisés depuis 1928 dans le pays, pourraient être gênés par ce nouveau venu au passé radical et violent, certains salafistes étant des "repentis" du jihad (guerre sainte).

"La percée des salafistes change la donne au sein du camp islamiste. Les Frères musulmans pourraient s'associer aux salafistes et se radicaliser", affirme Hassan Nafaa, professeur de sciences politiques à l'Université du Caire.

"Mais ils peuvent aussi les rejeter pour créer une grande coalition centriste capable de gouverner", poursuit-il. "Les Frères perçoivent les salafistes comme un boulet politique. "Ils savent qu'une alliance avec eux pourrait leur coûter cher".

De fait, la confrérie cherche désormais à rassurer, se réclamant d'un islam "centriste" et "modéré", et prenant ses distances avec les salafistes." (Atlas Info.fr)

Government must be approved by new parliament, says FJP leader (Muslim Brotherhood) | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

"The fact that Egypt’s newly elected parliament will be unable to form a government has raised questions about the Muslim Brotherhood’s relationship with the ruling military council (SCAF). It is an issue the Brotherhood seems to understand but is unwilling to tackle for now at least.Ahmed Subaie, media spokesman for the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP), the political arm of the Muslim Brotherhood, told Ahram Online that the party and other political forces had suspended talks on the formation of a coalition government following the overwhelming victory of Islamist parties in the first round of parliamentary elections.

"We cannot understand how an elected parliamentary majority would be unable to form a government, whilst a SCAF-appointed government with presidential authorities would continue to govern during the interim period according to the constitutional declaration," he said."  (Ahmed Eleiba/Ahram Online)
