The UE will send international observers to the Egyptian elections in May

European Union will send an observation mission to the presidential elections next May in Egypt, as the representative of the European Community Catherine Ashton and the Egyptian Minister for Foreign Affairs Nabil Fahmi announced.

In a common announcement published tonight, Ashton announced that the necessary agreements with the Ministry for Foreign Affairs and with the Presidential Electoral Commission to to start the mission will be finished soon.

These agreements will allow the observers of the EU the “ability to move freely through the whole country and will give access to all the legal political interlocutors.

Moreover, the announcement claims that the mission will develop its work and will evaluate in an impartial and unbiased way the electoral process.

“Both parts wish transparent and trustworthy elections for the Egyptians”, according to the note published by the Egyptian Government.

Ashton is in an official visit in Egypt, where she has had meetings with the main local authorities and with the presidential candidate and ex-manager of the Army, Abdelfatah al Sisi.

After her meeting with the temporary head of state, Adli Mansur, the Presidential Office claimed that Ashton welcomed the Egyptian invitation for the sending of observers ans stated that a group of qualified experts has already been selected for this task.

Mansur added that the European Community delegation will be welcomed as soon as the necessary bilateral agreements are signed.

The EU has has evaluated for several months the possibility of sending a mission of observers to the elections, as they already did during the presidential elections in 2012, after Egypt’s request.

However, during last constitutional referendum in January, the EU only sent a small group of experts, not observers, formed by five people.
