In 2011, the Egyptian people rose up against dictatorship and oppression. But these hopes were shattered by the army in a coup d’état, led by Abdel Fattah al-Sisi. Since then, under his regime, Egyptians have gone through an unprecedented time of hardship and the nation is on the brink of failure.

But the 2011 Revolution has not entirely failed as a few months of democracy between 2011 and 2013 were enough to change hearts and minds of Egyptians forever. Change is coming and democratic Egyptian political leaders must be ready.

The Egyptian National Action Group gathers politicians from different Egyptian political backgrounds, based both inside and outside Egypt. Despite our political orientation differences, what we have in common is much more important: an intrinsic attachment to democracy, freedom and the rule of law for all.

It is in this spirit that we are working together to oppose the junta and to prepare for a new era to resume the political process of democratisation.
