In the wake of Egyptian presidential elections, scholars Steven A. Cook (Council on Foreign Relations), Mohamed Elmenshawy (The Middle East Institute), Amy Hawthorne (Atlantic Council), Gamal Helal (Helal Enterprises, LLC), and Emad Shahin (The Woodrow Wilson Center, American University in Cairo) discussed the circumstances and outcome of the presidential vote. What do the levels of participation and the poll results indicate about the state of the Egyptian electorate? What do they indicate about the size and nature of the mandate received by Abdel Fattah al-Sisi? How should they impact the incoming president's priorities moving forward? How can a divided Egyptian electorate be re-engaged politically? How might recent developments affect the platforms and priorities for parties and candidates in parliamentary elections expected for this fall? The Middle East Institute's Vice President for Policy and Research Paul Salem led the discussion.
