Full and active support for the democratic transition in Egypt

17 février 2011

The S&D Group in the European Parliament calls on the EU and its Member States to actively support a rapid transition towards genuine democracy in Egypt.

 Said Adrian Severin vice-president and foreign affairs spokesman of the S&D Group:

« Socialists and Democrats in the European Parliament express our solidarity with the Egyptian people in their legitimate democratic aspirations. We applaud their courage and determination, especially that of the young generation

« The present events in Egypt prove that Islam can be not only fundamentalist but also democratic if we accept that democracy has a variable geometry and if we let it grow naturally in its own soil.

« If the EU does not address immediately and consistently the need to overcome the social and economic hardships in the country, the revolution might move to anarchy and from there towards another dictatorship.

« Therefore the EU should immediately take initiative to ensure the transformation in Egypt and in this context the visit of the High Representative of the EU to the region and her readiness to adapt and upgrade the necessary instruments to deal with the challenge is good news.

« The Egyptian armed forces must ensure an end to violence and play a constructive role in the democratic process.   All political and civil society actors should be involved in reaching a national consensus. »
