CAIRO – 26 April 2023: The National Dialogue Board of Trustees, announced, Wednesday finalizing ‘the final touches’ on listing the names participating in the Dialogue’s sessions, Journalist Jamal El Keshky, a member of Board of Trustees said.

He added that the opening session of the National Dialogue will be attended by a large crowd of  political forces from all parties.

He also noted a ‘final vision’ for the opening session has been developed and set.

El Keshky explained that all issues were arranged to be discussed during the sessions according to the National Dialogue's priorities, stressing that 12 committee sessions are being held weekly.

Last September, General Coordinator of the National Dialogue Diaa Rashwan said that he objective of holding the national dialogue is not a declaration of intention but, instead, finding solutions to the issues and putting proposals, he added in media comments to “Masr Gedida” TV show.

He noted that there are voices outsides the country trying to criticize it and turning blind eyes to other positives in society.

Participation in the national political dialogue is not limited to the invitees only, but Egyptians from different sectors can send their ideas and suggestions via e-mails, said Rashwan previously.

“All Egyptians are invited to participate in the national dialogue even if they did not receive a special invitation. The dialogue is open through the website of the National Training Academy. Send us via e-mail, we are waiting for all your contributions,” he said in media comments to “Masr Al Jadida” talk show on the ETC channel.

Rashwan added that the dialogue aims to present ideas for discussion and to get out of it with the best ones for reform.

Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi said that the objective of the national dialogue, which has been announced recently by him last month, aims at listening to people’s opinions for “the sake of the nation.”

President Sisi’s comments were stated during his meeting with a number of editors and media professionals from Egyptian newspapers, on the sidelines of his tour of Egypt's Future Project for Agricultural Production, which he inaugurated on May 21, 2022.

The national dialogue comes as part of Sisi's national human rights strategy, launched in September with vows to open the public space to be more and more inclusive. As such, hundreds of inmates, including dozens of human rights activists, have recently been released by the Presidential Pardon Committee.
