Ibn Khaldun Center: We will monitor the parliamentary elections under any circumstances

Saad Eddin Ibrahim, Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Ibn Khaldun Center for Development Studies, said the center is coordinating with 400 local organizations and a number of international organizations, such as the Carter Center and Freedom House, to monitor the upcoming parliamentary elections in 24 governorates.

He said the center will apply for a permit to monitor the elections. “But we will watch the elections even if we do not get a permit,” he said.

When asked about the possibility of the Carter Center monitoring the elections in Egypt, despite its announcement it would not participate because of what it described as a lack of good atmosphere, Ibrahim said everything is possible.
