Egypt’s National Youth Conference Facebook page has announced on Saturday a new initiative “Ask the President”, through which Egyptians will be allowed to directly ask president Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi and he will personally answer their questions.
The answers will be provided during Al-Sisi’s monthly meeting with youth from April 25 to 27 in Ismailia governorate.
The Facebook page shared the link to the initiative; anyone can freely ask, but they will have to attach links to their Facebook or Twitter pages in addition to their email addresses. The conference administration will collect some of the questions that will be given to the president.
According to the presidency media office, this initiative was launched in order to facilitate the communication between the president and to ensure the presence of a continuous dialogue.
The state-owned Al-Ahram reported that questions included clarifications regarding price hikes, the performance of the government and when Egypt will label Hamas as a terrorist organization. There were, as well, several questions regarding the absence of youth from leadership positions.
The National Youth Conference was launched in the first time in October 2016 as it was announced by Al-Sisi to be the “Year of the Youth”.
