Press Conference USA
PAUL SALEM / EGYPTIAN ELECTION ANALYSIS On this edition of the program host Carol Castiel, and VOA Senior Reporter, Mohamed Elshinnawi, talk with Paul Salem, Vice President of the Middle East Institute, formerly Director of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace in Beirut, about the implications of the presidential elections in Egypt, which were marked by low turnout, potentially undermining the legitimacy of former army chief Abdel Fatah al Sissi, who won by a landslide. Salem discusses the daunting political and economic challenges facing Sissi’s new government, the role of the now banned Muslim Brotherhood, US-Egypt relations and the potential for healing a polarized society.
