BTI 2020 Country Report – Egypt

Publikation: Bog/antologi/afhandling/rapportRapportForskningpeer review


During the period under review, the regime continued to rebuild the state in the way it deems it best to ensure its own survival. Thus, the rulers actively worked toward further manifestation of authoritarianism and state control. Abdel Fattah al-Sisi was reconfirmed as president in an unfair
and unfree election in March 2018, and policy-making remained dominated by anti-democratic veto actors, with the military and intelligence agencies playing a particularly prominent role. Moreover, the regime strengthened its grip on supposedly independent bodies, ranging from the
judiciary to anti-corruption agencies or labor unions and professional syndicates, and further centralized power in the president’s office.
