Re-Devoted to Politics

Ever since our revolution broke out on the 25th of January this year, The majority of us as Egyptians re-founded their lost interest in politics. In the past 20 years, Speaking your mind out about what you really thought of the president or the regime was considered a taboo.But the last 10 years of Mubarak‘s ruling had a teeny tiny bit of freedom,but again,with very strict rules.

And I can’t count the number of bloggers,journalists and political activists who were sent to detention camps because they thought they had enough freedom of speech…..

Anyways,am not willing to devote this blog to writing about politics. Am just happy with the political mobility that is on going these days in Egypt, and I am one of the people who use Facebook as their platform,to openly discuss which ever comes to mind and what we think of the potential candidates.

I never thought that a revolution could break out,better yet,result in ousting Mubarak and his clan. Which meant,having a healthy atmosphere for free elections. At the moment,we have 6 presidential candidates. I can say with all honesty, I feel torn,choosing between two tough and well qualified candidates. Having already ruled out four because they weren’t convincing enough,and seemed too daring,and willing to take uncalculated risks.

Those 2 that I think are qualified and capable for this stage are :

  • Dr Mohamed El Baradei: Worked as the General Director for the  International Atomic Energy Agency, and a Nobel Prize winner  for Peace in 2005. (Without going through detail of his programme or Agenda).
  • Mr.Amr Moussa: He’s an Egyptian diplomat who served as the Minister of Foreign Affairs for 10 years, was appointed as a permanent representative of Egypt at the United Nations for also 10 years, and held the position of the Secretary General of the Arab league .

That’s just my humble opinion,I might be wrong and I might be correct about those choices. Certainly all the potential candidates are now preparing for their up-coming campaigns and attending high rated talk shows to further boost their reputation and to introduce the people to their political orientation.

Definitely someone who opposes the 1979 Camp David Peace treaty with Israel is over estimating his power. Nevertheless,subjecting our country to endless negative complications that can occur upon cancelling this treaty. Our country is moving towards what we call a “transitional phase”. Almost as if you’re starting from scratch and trying to clean all the fungus that has been there for over 30 years. What kind of reform will that be when you push the country to a war with neighbouring Israel?! I’m not saying our army isn’t qualified,no it is. But you just cannot re-establish a country ,whilst engaging in a war with another country. That’s just what I think.
