Tarek Heggy to form a new political party in EgyptPosted: 2011/04/02
Tarek Heggy will shortly announce the inception of a new political party in Egypt. The new party’s agenda will be:
- To advocate that the solution of Egypt’s problems must not be based on ideological grounds but entirely on the basis of modern sciences and management techniques
- Women’s rights in full
- The full participation of all minorities as full Egyptian citizens
The new party is working out a plan for the four years 2011-2015 to reach every Egyptian citizen in all Egypt’s governorates. This party will have an executive committee of three members which will be headed by Tarek Heggy.
In an article in Jerusalem Post, Tarek Heggy says that Israel is not the cause of Egypt’s problem. “We ourselves are the cause – having tolerated for decades medieval monarchies or military dictatorships in the form of republics where rulers were ‘owners’ and the people ‘objects.'”
