At a meeting of the ruling National Democratic Party (NDP) on Wednesday, NDP Policy Secretary Gamal Mubarak said the party had been "modernized" to meet new challenges.
Mubarak, who is also the son of President Hosni Mubarak, went on to declare that next month’s parliamentary polls would be "the most competitive elections" in the nation’s history.
“We will continue to work on improving medical services, reducing unemployment and alleviating the problems faced by farmers,” he promised.
“We have achieved a lot in recent years,” the younger Mubarak asserted. “We amended the law to allow more seats for women in parliament.”
“And we will work on achieving more in the next five years and beyond,” he said, adding that the party had succeeded in creating four million new job opportunities.
“Our priority in the coming period will be to expand the social security umbrella to cover all citizens and to fight poverty,” he concluded.
