The January 25 revolution and resignation of the leader of 30 years, Hosni Mubarak, presents a cutting point in the path towards democracy in Egypt. A country, which after political history of autocratic rule, single-party dominance and suspension of constitutional rights, has embarked on a complicated transitional proces.
During transitional periods political parties have to make the political system work and start to deliver on some of the expectations that the public has invested in them. The Egyptian political parties are facing a lot of challenges. The electoral process showed that there was a demand for capacity development, especially among the newly established parties. The political party map of Egypt is still in state of flux with new parties emerging.
To respond to these challenges in the transition towards multiparty democracy, DIPD has entered into a partnership with Egyptian and international institutions to support capacity building of political parties in Egypt.
DIPD supports new and emerging political parties in Egypt via the programme ‘Towards a dynamic and participatory political party environment’.
