Syrian presidential candidate Hassan al-Nouri casts his vote at a polling station in the Sheraton hotel in central Damascus. Nouri held a press conference in the same location after casting his vote.

Hassan al-Nouri:
“Today in Syria we have started a new era, the era of true victory over terrorism and this global war [inflicted on Syria]. Syria has won with the will of its people and the great Syrian Army. I, as a presidential candidate of the Syrian Republic, have voted for myself of course. I declare that if it was not for the strength of the great people of Syria, we would not have got to this day. We stand here among all of you voting for the new president of this country, among the will of Syrians and the strength of Syrians and thank you”.

Question: What are you chances of wining given the popularity of Bashar al-Assad?

“President Assad is very popular, but he is also facing strong competitors”.

Question: What do you promise Syrians if you become president?

“If I become president, I promise Syrians that I will walk the path of national dialogue and a peaceful Syrian to Syrian dialogue. [I promise] to fight terrorism in order to achieve peace and security in this country and to commence the project of national economic and social reform that we desperately need”.

Question: In case you do not win in the election, how will you serve your country?

“If I do not reach the position of president, I will remain a good citizen who does his best to serve his country. I believe that I have recorded my name in the political field of Syria and I am certain that we will all play a great role in building Syria and accomplishing total victory”.

Question: How do you feel about the election process so far?

“So far the whole operation is democratic and we are optimistic that we will see a strong victory. This enormous march of people is something that I was not expecting. This march is expected to continue into the night and we might need to extend [the election] for another day”.

26 Feb 2013

The Salafist Nour Party decided on Monday, February 25, to participate in the parliamentary elections of Egypt’s House of Representatives in April amid calls for boycott, but added that the government must ensure that the elections are free and fair.

The party calls on all Egypt’s political forces to participate in the elections.

In a press conference, Deputy Head of the Salafist Nour Party Bassam al-Zarqa said that there is a need for "clear and sufficient guarantees for the integrity and transparency of the election”, saying this requires certain ministries administrative bodies and crews assisting judges to be neutral.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) - Deputy Head of the Salafist Nour Party Bassam al-Zarqa:
“Nour Party will participate in the upcoming parliamentary elections in order to complete the building of all the country’s political institutions as well as to solve the entire disasters that we are facing now. The Nour Party calls on all other political forces and coalitions to participate in the elections.”

Zarqa added that Nour Party will only form alliances with parties that have the same Islamic frame of reference.

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) - Deputy Head of the Salafist Nour Party Bassam al-Zarqa:
“Nour Party will form an electoral alliance only with parties with an Islamic reference. We all have to cooperate and unite to push our dear country Egypt to move forward. We all have to cooperate in the reconstruction of Egypt.”

On the other hand, several figures of the opposition have voiced their intention to boycott the parliamentary elections, including founder of the Constitution Party Mohamed ElBaradei who described the coming parliamentary poll as an act of "deception."

Egypt's parliamentary elections, previously scheduled to begin on 27 April, have been brought forward to start on 22 April, after Coptic Christians said that the original dates conflicted with Christian holidays, including Easter.

The first round of voting will be held on 22 and 23 April and will take place in Cairo, Beheira, El-Minya, Port Said and North Sinai. If runoffs are necessary, they will take place on 29 and 30 April. The house is expected to hold its first session on 2 July.

The Nour Party, established after the January 25 revolution, won the second most seats in parliamentary elections held at the end of 2011 after the Muslim Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party (FJP).

STORYLINE:

Egypt’s Planning and International Cooperation Minister Ashraf al-Araby said on Thursday, February 21, in a press conference that the Egyptian economy grew only 2.2 percent in 2nd quarter of 2012/13, representing a 15.3 percent decrease on the previous quarter.

Al-Araby said that the first half of fiscal year 2012/13 (July-December) saw economic growth of 2.4 percent, which had been 0.1 percent lower than expected.

He said that the government is targeting economic growth of no less than 3 percent in the current fiscal year.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) - Egypt’s Planning and International Cooperation Minister Ashraf al-Araby:
“We are targeting at the end of the current fiscal year 2012/13 an economical growth of no less than 3 percent. We need to meet this target to achieve economic growth rate that exceeds 3 percent in the second half of the year.”

He said that foreign investment in Egypt was almost non-existent in the six months to the end of December, illustrating the depth of the economic crisis that Egypt is facing.

He added that the country needed strong investment to reach the 7 percent annual economic growth rate commonly cited by economists as the level needed to lower unemployment and soak up new entrants to the labour market.

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) - Egypt’s Planning and International Cooperation Minister Ashraf al-Araby:
“Actually, the current economic situation is much more difficult even than it was after the revolution hence, we need to put all our political disputes aside. We need to reach a political consensus to overcome this difficult phase that the Egyptian economy is facing and to move forward.”

The Egyptian government plans within one week to invite an International Monetary Fund mission for talks, al-Araby said on Thursday.

SOUNDBITE 3 (Arabic) - Egypt’s Planning and International Cooperation Minister Ashraf al-Araby:
“God willing, we expect to invite the IMF technical delegation within days and we will show you in details of the axes which the national program include that we will present to the IMF.”

Egypt reached an initial agreement with the IMF on the loan agreement in November but postponed final ratification in December because of political unrest at the time.
