Egypt

Overview

Since the fall of President Hosni Mubarack’s authoritarian regime in 2011, Egypt has gone through tumultuous political phases. Meeting the hopes and aspirations of the Egyptian people depends on Egypt’s ability to build inclusive, representative and democratic institutions. Transition to democracy requires free and unrestricted space where all political actors are empowered to  participate.

NDI has worked in Egypt for over two decades. NDI helped support the first domestic election observations initiative in 1995. In 2005 and again in 2010, NDI assisted civil society organizations conduct the first officially sanctioned election observation in Egypt for the presidential and parliamentary elections. Through 2011 NDI’s programs included sharing international experiences on democratic transitions, training for the long-term development of political parties, and assistance to civil society organizations engaged in election monitoring, civic education and nonpartisan voter education.

After closing its Cairo offices in 2012 in accordance with the international NGO laws in Egypt, NDI continues to provide consultations to Egyptians who are interested in participating in their local government and communities.
