Egypte - Q&A - Excerpts from the daily press briefing (25.01.18)

Q : Do you consider the Egyptian presidential campaign to be free and credible?

A : The Egyptian election campaign will begin once all the candidates who have filed before January 29 have been validated by the electoral commission and the final list of candidates has been announced on February 24.

We encourage the Egyptian authorities to do everything possible to ensure that this campaign unfolds in the best possible conditions.

France is committed to strengthening democracy and the rule of law, which both contribute to stability.
