The workshop was moderated by Mr. Maged Sorour, Director of One World Foundation.


In the beginning Mr. Maged Sorour indicated to the role of Refa'a Al- Tahtawi Forum in producing professional policy papers that address the Egyptian decision maker, and wished the climate to be fine for the decision makers to start using the products of the Egyptian think tanks. Then he pointed out the importance of discussing the proposed amendments of the election law of House of Representatives within the corridors of the forum before the floor discussion of the Shura council to the law. Sorour then gave the speech to Dr.Gamal Zahran and earlier indicated that Zahran was member of the parliament in the session of 2005- 2010 which was the fairest election that witnessed full judicial supervision. 

Dr. Zahran noted that currently the Egyptian climate is characterized by political conflict, and that to analyze the current situation you have to analyze the results of the last referendum on the constitution which passed by 63%, this percentage which naturally resulted in the existing situation. This percentage from his point of view means that nearly 32% of the registered voters had boycotted the referendum in comparison with the percentages of the voting in the constitutional amendments referendum on March 2011. He said that the percentage of turnout in the first referendum is higher than of the turnout on the last referendum. Thus Zahran mentioned that the number of opposition is increasing gradually.
