EOHR welcomes Egyptians’ voting worldwide

October 26th, 2011 by Editor

On October 25, 2011, the Egyptian Administrative Court issued a decision to enable the Egyptian citizens worldwide to vote for the forthcoming parliamentary elections. As a response to the lawsuit filed against the Egyptian High Commission for Elections, the decision enabled the diplomatic missions worldwide to establish polling stations for Egyptians’ voting in referendums and elections run in Egypt.

The Egyptian Organization for Human Rights (EOHR) welcomes the court verdict and stresses on the constitutional right of the Egyptian citizens outside Egypt to participate in the political transformation phase. They should play their role in achieving the state of law and democracy in Egypt.  The constitutional declaration, issued in March 2011, stated that all the Egyptian citizens are equal in connection with, rights, duties, faith, religion, gender, color, race and language.

EOHR calls for speeding up the court verdict activation and taking away all the obstacles on the way to political participations of Egyptians outside Egypt. Political participation is a free right for all, according to the Egyptian constitution.
