Egypt Elections Watch


George Mason University's Middle East Studies Program is an official co-sponsor of the Egypt Elections Watch Project, arguably the most comprehensive coverage in the English language of the Egyptian Parliamentary elections (2011-2012).

As part of the Egypt Elections Watch (EEW), co-sponsored by the Center of Contemporary Arab Studies (Georgetown University) and the Middle East Studies Program (George Mason University), Jadaliyya and Ahram Online produce articles/posts/profiles on a weekly basis. These cover organizations, political parties, coalitions, relevant laws and procedures, and profiles of key individuals related to the Egyptian elections. They also provide news updates summarizing major developments surrounding the lead-up to the election, such as emerging or shifting alliances, new political positions, and candidacy announcements.

If you have questions, comments, contributions, and/or an eye-witness account, please email Jadaliyya at
