  • Description

    A programme to return Egypt to a multi-party democracy has been thrown a challenge when plans were announced in Cairo on Tuesday (23 August) to revive the pre-revolutionary Wafd party. If successful, it would be the fourth political party to be set up since President Anwar Sadat announced the creation of political parties following the parliamentary elections last November. Before the election, the only legal political party was the Arab Socialist Union, which was created after President Nasser assumed power 21 years ago.
