CAIRO – 3 May 2023: Egypt’s General Coordinator of the National Dialogue Diaa Rashwan delivered the speech of veteran politician Hamdeen Sabahi, founder of the Dignity Party at the national dialogue inaugural session on Wednesday.

“Before I deliver Hamdeen’s message, I must acknowledge his great and very distinguished role from the first moment President Abdel Fattah al Sisi shook hands with him at the Egyptian family's iftar, Ramadan 2022, and following President Sisi's call for national dialogue.” Rashwan said

Rashwan added: "Since this moment, Sabahi, and his colleagues in the civil movement and its parties made a great effort for the success of the dialogue, however; yesterday he suffered a great tragedy with the death of his older sister."

In his short message, Sabahy wished the national dialogue all success setting foundations that can help developing and supporting all efforts that aim for the benefit and interest of the country.

 “Given the emergency situation of the passing of my older sister, which I used to consider as my second mother, it prevented me from attending the opening session.” Sabahy said.

He added: “We wish the national dialogue all success in achieving what we aspire to, dream and seek for our country.”

Egypt’s General Coordinator of the National Dialogue Diaa Rashwan said in his speech during the dialogue inaugural session that Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah al Sisi’s call for the National Dialogue last April is the first of its kind since the 1925 revolution.

He added that Egypt has witnessed various dialogues, “but this is the first time that a national dialogue has been held without predetermined political goals other than consensus on the priorities of national work.”

He added that President Sisi does not have a party or union, as was the case before, “rather, he calls Egyptians for a national dialogue to discuss what they find important and comes as a priority from them.”

Rashwan stressed that “There isn’t a single party, syndicate, entity for youth, or a political power that has not participated in the National Dialogue.”
