Un remaniement ministériel ouvre la voie à la candidature d'Al-Sissi à l'élection présidentielle.

Un remaniement ministériel ouvre la voie à la candidature d'Al-Sissi à l'élection présidentielle. | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Prime Minister Hazem al-Beblawi has said a cabinet reshuffle will include the defense ministry, an Egyptian newspaper said on Saturday, in the clearest sign yet that Field Marshal Abdel Fattah al-Sisi plans to stand for president.

Deposed President Mohammed Mursi, meanwhile, is facing trial on Saturday over violence outside the presidential palace during unrest in late 2012.

Army chief Sisi, now defense minister in Egypt's interim government, ousted Mursi from office in July after mass protests against his rule and is widely expected to announce his candidacy within days and win an election easily.

But before he can run for president he must step down from his government post.

The reshuffle will not be announced before a visit by Beblawi to Saudi Arabia, a major financial supporter of Egypt's interim government, on Tuesday and Wednesday, the privately-owned al-Masry al-Youmnewspaper quoted him as saying.

Egypt presidency says only police responsible for security

Egypt presidency says only police responsible for security | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Egypt's presidential spokesman, Ihab Fahmy, has said that making arrests and maintaining security are the responsibility of the state and that the interior ministry is the concerned body. 

Fahmy added in a statement that was reported by the state news agency that the government is keen on supporting the interior ministry at this critical time, calling on all forces to cooperate to restore the trust between the people and the police apparatus. 

Police officers and central security forces began strikes in Cairo and other locations in recent weeks in protest against their involvement in political disputes and what they described as their inadequate preparation to confront violence.  

In response to the strikes, some ultraconservative Islamist groups had called for communal police to assume the responsibility of maintaining security which some liberal politicians saw as an attempt to leave room for illegal militias to take the law into their own hands. (...)

Egypt Presidency to appeal court order cancelling vote decree

Egypt Presidency to appeal court order cancelling vote decree | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Egypt's presidency will appeal a decision by the administrative court to cancel President Mohamed Mursi's call for a parliamentary vote starting April 22, legal advisor Mohamed Gadallah told Reuters.

"The presidency respects the administrative court's decision and will stop the call for parliamentary elections. We are in a democratic system that respects the rule of law," he said on Wednesday.

"Having said that, there will be an appeal of the court's decision filed by the State Judiciary Authority which represents the presidency and the government."

He said the appeal will argue that election decrees are sovereign acts carried out by the presidency and should not be overturned.

Foreign ministry officials to take over as presidential spokesmen

Foreign ministry officials to take over as presidential spokesmen | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

President Mohamed Morsy appointed Foreign Ministry officials Omar Amer and Ehab Fahmy as the new spokesmen for the president's office. The men will succeed Yasser Ali, who will step down this month.

Ali is set to take over at the Information and Decision Support Center, the Cabinet's think tank, in March.

Both Amer and Fahmy are well traveled after stints in several Egyptian embassies around the world. Amer worked in Australia, Vienna and Washington, while Fahmy was staff the nation's embassies in Algeria, Paris and Rome.

Privately-owned Al-Watan newspaper reported that Amer was the deputy ambassador to Washington before he joined the Foreign Ministry's EU partnership department. Previously, Fahmy was the political advisor for the Egyptian Embassy in Rome.

Ali said his new role was a relief, since working in the president's office as a member of the Muslim Brotherhood had been a burden due to strong criticism by opposition members for his political leanings. He made the comments in a phone interview Monday with privately owned channel CBC.

Presidential Spokesperson Yasser Ali said Saturday that investigations into the clashes in front of Ettehadiya Palace Friday have begun, and that investigators were trying to determine whether or not the clashes were instigated by political groups.

In a phone call with a talk show aired on the privately-owned satellite channel CBC, Ali said several people involved in yesterday’s clashes were arrested and were currently being interrogated.

Regarding the protester who was stripped naked and dragged by security forces in front the palace, Ali said that the president's office rejects such incidents and that it is following the Interior Ministry's investigations.

Presidency statement blames Copts for sparking Cathedral encounters

Presidency statement blames Copts for sparking Cathedral encounters | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

The Egyptian presidency on Tuesday blamed Coptic youths for starting fights outside St. Mark’s Coptic Orthodox Cathedral with residents of the nearby Abbasseya district (...)

 

The statement contradicts reports saying that four Coptic Christians were killed. Conflicting reports have also come as to whether the graffiti on the wall was the work of Christian or Muslim youth.(...)

 

“Should we wait for directives to open an investigation once a problem occurs?” the pope asked in a phone-in with private satellite channel ONtv earlier on Tuesday, commenting on Morsy’s decision late Monday to order an investigation into the events. “Justice should be vigilant and the law must be applied,” he said.

The presidency’s statement, meanwhile, claimed that the office had done its best to control the situation and protect citizens lives, adding that the government is “doing all it can to realize the sovereignty of law and hold the assailants accountable.”

Egypt presidency to appeal court order cancelling vote decree

Egypt presidency to appeal court order cancelling vote decree | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it
Egypt's presidency will appeal a decision by the country's administrative court cancelling President Mohamed Mursi's call for a parliamentary vote starting April 22, his legal advisor said.

Earlier on Wednesday the court's ruling threw the timetable for elections into disarray and raised fears the four-stage polls would be delayed at a time of social unrest and economic crisis.

"The presidency respects the administrative court's decision and will stop the call for parliamentary elections. We are in a democratic system that respects the rule of law," adviser Mohamed Gadallah said.

"Having said that, there will be an appeal of the court's decision filed by the State Judiciary Authority which represents the presidency and the government."

He said the appeal will argue that election decrees are sovereign acts carried out by the presidency and should not be overturned.

Gadallah however said the presidency respected the administrative court's decision and was not in conflict with the judiciary. The court's decision was based on a technical error because the Shura Council did not send the electoral law to the Supreme Constitutional Court for final review, he said.

"I am of the opinion that the Shura Council should have resent the electoral law back to the constitutional court for final review before passing it."

Egypt Muslim Brotherhood Says It Doesn’t Interfere in Presidency

Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood said it doesn’t interfere in the affairs of the presidency or any other executive bodies.

The group’s Guidance Office, its main decision-making body, and its supreme guide “have not interfered in any way” in President Mohamed Mursi’s office, spokesman Mahmoud Ghozlan said on the group’s website today.

His statement came in response to a report in independent daily Al-Shorouk yesterday of contacts between Mursi and Supreme Guide Mohamed Badie to resolve Egypt’s economic and political crisis.

Mursi’s critics say the president, who became the country’s first democratically elected civilian leader in June, has sought to advance the interests of the Brotherhood while failing to revive the economy or address social problems.

Sources said on Thursday that the move was part of a broader restructuring plan for the presidents team that would be presented to Morsy for approval on Saturday.

Ali came under heavy criticism for relentlessly denying news reports, and the president wanted to relieve him of this pressure, the sources said.

Yasser Ali, 48, was appointed as spokesperson on 30 June. He is a dermatologist who joined the Muslim Brotherhood in 1987, and has a diploma in media from Cairo

Le porte-parole officiel de la présidence Dr. Yasser Ali a déclaré que le président Mohamed Morsi, avait regagné le Caire en provenance de l'Allemagne au terme d'une visite officielle.

Le président Morsi avait assisté à la réunion du Conseil d'affaires égypto-allemand et examiné avec des penseurs allemands le processus de la transformation démocratique en Égypte et la coopération égypto-allemande.

Il a affirmé que le président s'était entretenu avec la Chancelière allemande, Angela Merkel, de la coopération économique, la hausse des échanges commerciaux et des investissements et l'augmentation du nombre de touristes allemands vers l'Egypte.

M. Morsi a informé Mme Merkel des efforts déployés par l'Etat pour appliquer les programmes de réforme politique et économique et rétablir la stabilité dans le pays après la ratification de la Constitution outre des prochaines élections législatives, affaire qui encouragera l'injection de davantage d'investissements en Egypte.

Les pourparlers sont axés sur plusieurs questions régionales et internationales d'intérêt commun avec en tête la crise syrienne, l'arrêt de l'effusion du sang des Syriens, le processus de paix au Proche-Orient et l'allégement de la souffrance du peuple palestinien
