Election Compass for the parliamentary elections in Egypt is now online

Bosala.orgIn cooperation with Radio Netherlands Worldwide (RNW), Al Jazeera and a host of Egyptian media partners, Election Compass Egypt was launched on Monday November 15.
This online tool helps Egyptian voters find out which political party most closely reflects their views. Earlier this month, Election Compass launched a similar website in Morocco and also developed a Election Compass for the first democratic election in Tunisia.
Election Compass Egypt is developed by a team of outstanding Egyptian academics from both Cairo University and the American University Cairo. To provide a high quality and reliable source of party positions on salient issues, the team of Prof. Mazen Hassan and Prof. Ibrahim El Nour have cooperated with an international group of scholars from the region.

After answering 30 statements covering the most relevant issues during the upcoming Egyptian parliamentary elections - which start on November 28th- users are placed among the most important political parties that make up the new political landscape of Egypt.

Election Compass Egypt allows users to compare their own views with the positions of the parties and is completely transparent: the positions of parties on the issues are justified with a text section of their party program or from their party website. All users have full access to this information.

To promote the website and to publicize the results of our analysis, Election Compass collaborates with international and Egyptian media partners such as Al Jazeera, Al-Hayat TV, Shourouk News, Masrawy, MSN Arabia and Fatakat. In the course of the elections, more media-partners will join to help Egyptian voters in making the important decision of who to vote for in this first democratic election.
Election Compass Egypt is available in both Arabic and English on www.masr.bosala.org
