Egyptian Opposition Parties Infiltrated by Regime



Opposition leader of the liberal Ghad Party Ayman Nour's wife, Gamila Ismail, who also works as the party's spokeswoman accused: “Mubarak's ruling National Democratic Party and the security forces of inciting troubles inside the party. "

On Saturday, several Al-Ghad figures - including the deputy leader and the secretary general - filed a claim to the government's Parties Commission, that they were the party's true leaders. The commission, which regulates all political parties, has the power to freeze Al-Ghad because of the dispute. It has not said when it will rule over the dispute.

The rebellious Al-Ghad members had also asked a court to prevent Nour from holding the party convention, alleging that he was already removed from Al-Ghad leadership and has no authority inside it.

Who are the deputy leader and the secretary general(after Mona Makram Ebeid) ? No newswire or journal mention the names ?

The vice-president who, persuant to the regulations of El Ghad is also the deputy leader, is formally still Moussa Moustafa Moussa. Upon his "dismissal" Nour called for appointing Ambassador Nagui al-Ghoutreifi as the first deputy to the chairman. This is all contested now since Moussa himself claims he ousted Nour from the party and took over the chairmanship. As you can see, the party is splitting up and this will be the golden chance for the (NDP owned) Parliamentary Committee to rule that El Ghad cannot take part in the coming elections. All is well that ends well... :(

I dont know who is the successor to Mona Makram Ebeid.... :( sorry...

I thought that the people won. As a first attempt, it’s the first time too see this number people running against him. I feel sad about what happened during the elections but it's always good to see some progress, at least the people are finally speaking up.

The people will win, even if they did not win now. It is always the will of the people.

Don't feel sad, there were many signs that made the results of the elections predictable in a way.

It is true though we are more vocal and outspoken as you said.
