Election Compass Egyptian Presidential Elections
At the end of 2011, Kieskompas launched - in collaboration with Radio Netherlands Worldwide (RNW) and two Egyptian universities - an online application for the historical Egyptian parliamentary elections. For the first time in history, Egyptian citizens had access to an online Voting Advice Application (VAA). Kieskompas and RNW are continuing their successful cooperation in Egypt by developing a second Election Compass for the Presidential elections, which will take place on May 23rd. A second round will be held on June 16th if none of the candidates is able to win a majority of the vote. Election Compass will make the differences between the competing candidates crystal-clear, allowing Egyptian voters to find out which of the candidates is closest to their own political preferences. A large team of distinguished Egyptian scientists has developed a selection of straightforward statements on salient issues that are currently debated in Egypt. This Election Compass for the Egyptian Presidential elections will be available in both English and Arabic and will be launched in the last week of April.
