The Egyptian government has announced it has approved the demolition of the headquarters of former President Hosni Mubarak’s political party.

According to state media, the headquarters of the National Democratic Party, will be demolished by the Military’s engineering body.

Following the building’s destruction, how the land will be used will be determined by the government. Last year, reports had indicated the land may be given to the near-by Egyptian Museum, but the plans never came to fruition.

The NDP HQ was completely torched during the January 25 revolution and stood as a reminder of the toppling of former President Hosni Mubarak, who had been in power for 30 years.

The party was was dissolved in April 2011 and had at least two million members. Founded in 1978 by former President Anwar El-Sadat, the NDP was once Egypt’s most prominent political party, wielding uncontested power prior to the January 25 revolution.

    i think they should keep it, and destroy it completely after the next revolution which will start soon. Long live the 25 Jan. Revolution!

    I heard they are going to build a giant statue of Sisi there.

    • Ramez Magdy

      They will built it soon, and beside of it they will build a giant temple where the army’s boot lickers can pray to their general sisi, too.

  • Peter Lacovara

    It is an unsafe and unstable, not to mention a hideously ugly building and would be totally unsuitable to become a museum based on the revolution. The land was taken from the Cairo Museum and should be returnned to it. Possibly as a park it would serve as a memorial garden to revolution, far better to have something beautiful than an eyesore.

    Better to convert it into a museum based on the Revelation.
    Sad that this never happened.
