Amr Moussa a déclaré qu'il ne sera pas candidat à la présidence. Il soutient le général Abdel Fattah al-Sissi qui, selon lui, assumera les responsabilités présidentielles d'une manière démocratique

Amr Moussa a déclaré qu'il ne sera pas candidat à la présidence. Il soutient le général Abdel Fattah al-Sissi qui, selon lui, assumera les responsabilités présidentielles d'une manière démocratique | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

According to Moussa, Sisi is capable of achieving harmony between the presidency and the army. He also noted that the constitution will constitute a new chance to move forward from the transitional period and establish the third republic on the basis of democracy and a civil state. Moussa shed light on the weakness characterizing the role of Egypt within its regional surroundings, expecting the Geneva II talks, in which Egypt is taking part, not to reach a settlement for the Syrian crisis.

Moussa served as Egypt's foreign minister and then as head of the Arab League. He re-emerged on the Egyptian political scene after the January 2011 revolution, presenting his candidacy for president. However, Moussa did not make it to the seat of power after he received only 10.9% of the votes. A number of decisions made by the administration of former President Mohammed Morsi and his government, and described by Moussa as unwise, have led him to return to the political scene to contribute to the formation of the National Salvation Front (NSF). The NSF was a strong backer of the deposition of Morsi and the ouster of the Muslim Brotherhood. After that, Moussa headed the 50-member committee tasked with drafting the new Egyptian constitution. Last Saturday, 98.1% of voters approved of the constitution in a referendum.

Egypt's Mussa ups the ante on Islamist government

Egypt's Mussa ups the ante on Islamist government | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it
Egypt-actus's insight:

By Samer al-Atrush / Middle Esat Online

 

The Egyptian opposition is more determined than ever to boycott parliamentary elections after Islamist President Mohamed Morsi challenged a court decision delaying the polls, former Arab League chief Amr Mussa said on Thursday.

In an interview with AFP, Mussa said there had been no "serious talks" with the president on the opposition's core demand for a government of national unity despite the impact of the political deadlock on Egypt's faltering economy.

The opposition has come under strong US pressure to take part in the elections, which had been scheduled for next month, and Mussa said it might have done so had the president accepted the delay ordered by the court.

"We would have gained some time to talk about the points we are raising, and to give the government time to reconsider," he said.

The president's appeal "does reverse the situation," he said, "bringing it back to the tension around the election."

Moussa says Egyptian president lost legitimacy

Moussa says Egyptian president lost legitimacy | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it
Egypt-actus's insight:

Former Arab League Chief, Amr Moussa, has said that Egypt's president has lost his constitutional legitimacy. 

"I do not see anyone with legitimacy in a country on the verge of collapse," the former presidential candidate said to "7 Ayam" Magazine in an interview published on Tuesday. 

The opposition figure held President Mohamed Mursi responsible for deteriorating conditions less than two months before elections for a new House of Representatives begin.  

Moussa, who is a member of the National Salvation Front that groups a number of opposition parties, insisted that it is unacceptable to blame the opposition for failures when according to legal, political and unbiased rules, decision-makers must be held responsible. 

The founder of the 'Conference' Party insisted that Egypt's current economic state requires immediate recovery, arguing that the government is unable to meet the demands of the people and has nothing to offer to them. 

Moussa also insisted that it is unacceptable for an economy in the 21st century to depend on aid and charity, asking the authorities if it is wise to focus on elections as opposed to reviving the economy. 

He renewed his call for a national coalition government that includes all political forces to replace the current one as well as the postponement of the election.

Int'l Conference For Supporting Egypt's Economy Is Necessary: Amr Moussa

Int'l Conference For Supporting Egypt's Economy Is Necessary: Amr Moussa | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

There are more than an interior and exterior regional player in the Arab region, said Amr Moussa, Former Secretary General of the Arab League; referring that the Arab world and Middle East is facing a critical period.

Moussa has referred to the significance of holding an international conference to bolster the Egyptian economy with the upcoming years; clarifying that Egypt needs a financial push to revive the economy. This matter requires well management and taking rapid necessary decisions at the suitable time.

In statements on the sidelines of International Conference of Council for Arab and International Relations, kicked off yesterday, Moussa described the changes occur in the Arab world as radical so we can't back to square one; elucidating that the Arab people are witnessing a radical change, which is a development in itself. Therefore, this development should be accompanied by improvements in how to manage the concerns of the Middle East.

 

The initiative launched by Al Nour Party is convenient to the initiative of the National Salvation Front (NSF) over a national salvation cabinet and changing a number of current policies, Moussa said. Despite that, the Egyptian president hasn't approved forming new government so far, although the new government is a key matter in improving the level of the political and economic policies.

Egypt-actus's insight:

The Conference Party, headed by former presidential contender Amr Moussa, calls for a national consensus government and to postpone setting a date for parliamentary elections.

 

In a statement issued on Sunday the libeeral party called for a government that "does not exclude any political group or party," arguing that is what Egypt needs to manage affairs "in this critical situation - especially in light of the general dissatisfaction that one group [the Muslim Brotherhood] rules the country alone."

The party says security and reviving the economy are priorities.

The party also called for "speeding up identifying those responsible for the [recent Port Said] massacre and putting them on trial… especially those who did not take appropriate precautionary measures needed to protect [the people]."

Prosecution's decision opens door to guardianship - Opposition leader Moussa

Prosecution's decision opens door to guardianship - Opposition leader Moussa | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it
Egypt-actus's insight:

Egypt's former presidential candidate and diplomat Amr Moussa said on Monday that giving citizens a right pertaining that they can arrest people, even if against thugs, adds to Egypt's chaos.

"This issue takes the situation back to putting Egypt under the guardianship of individuals and groups who might find in this right means to their illegitimate wish of intruding in people's lives," the former Arab League Secretary General said as reported by state news agency, MENA.

Moussa asked the prosecution to take back that decision, saying, "What is going on is more than enough, applying Article 37 of the Procedural Law requires an explanation, so that it does not become an excuse for negative alteration of its meaning."

The Salvation Front, Egypt's biggest opposition bloc, and a number of Political Parties denounced the prosecution's decision to grant the right of arrest to citizens, describing it as a political cover for Islamist militias.

Meanwhile, the general prosecution issued a statement on Monday saying that its earlier statement did not grant ordinary citizens the right to arrest outlaws; it only entailed notifying the citizens of their constitutional right to turn in suspects who are caught in the criminal act to the authorities.

The statement stressed, "The right to arrest is granted by law to some government officials. The Justice Minister is authorized to grant this right to others under certain circumstances."

Moussa: National Salvation Front respects Morsy’s legitimacy

Moussa: National Salvation Front respects Morsy’s legitimacy | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Amr Moussa, former Arab League chief, said Sunday that the National Salvation Front — the largest opposition coalition — respects the legitimacy of President Mohamed Morsy and does not seek to overthrow him.

But Moussa added that Popular Current movement founder Hamdeen Sabbahi is calling for earlier presidential elections.

“We do not talk about Morsy’s legitimacy, but rather about his credibility in dealing with the problems of the ordinary Egyptian citizen,” Moussa said. “We are against his policies, and just as he is legitimate, the opposition is too,” he said. (Egypt independent)

Selon Amr Mousa, l'Egypte devrait proposer l'asile à Assad

Selon Amr Mousa, l'Egypte devrait proposer l'asile à Assad | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it
L'Egypte pourrait contribuer à la résolution de la crise syrienne en proposant l'asile au président Bachar el-Assad, a déclaré l'ex-secrétaire général de la Ligue arabe Amr Moussa.
Egypt-actus's insight:

"Il me semble que le règlement de cette situation nécessite plusieurs mesures, dont des garanties de sécurité au président Assad ainsi qu'à sa famille afin qu'ils puissent quitter la Syrie (…). J'ai déjà proposé aux pays arabes d'accorder l'asile au président Assad ou d'envisager une telle possibilité. Et l'Egypte devrait être le premier à le faire si le pays souhaite apporter sa contribution à la résolution de ce problème", a estimé l'opposant égyptien dans une interview accordée au journal arabophone Ash Sharque al Aswat publié à Londres.

M.Moussa s'est également déclaré sceptique quant aux initiatives avancées par le dirigeant égyptien Mohamed Morsi en vue de mettre fin au conflit syrien. Selon lui, la mise en place du Quartette islamique proposée par le président Morsi a été entamée au moment inopportun, l'Arabie saoudite n'étant pas prête à ce format d'action.

En dépit de plusieurs réunions pour la plupart ignorées par Riyad, le Quartette islamique (Iran, Turquie, Arabie saoudite, Egypte) n'est pas parvenu à élaborer une approche unifiée au règlement syrien en raison de divergences entre les membres du groupe. (Ria Novosti)
