Egypt's ruling party, headed by Hosni Mubarak (who has been President for almost thirty years) is the National Democratic Party (NDP). Wikipedia has a description of the party.
I wrote briefly about El Naschie's June 1 column in this comment, but here's what I said in-line:
The Rosa Al-Youssef column is up for Tuesday, June 1. «Lords» SC. Arabic or English.
El Naschie likens the Shura Council to the English House of Lords. Later he says that Mubarak's ruling party has the confidence of the vast majority of Egyptian citizens. That's because they don't meet behind closed doors in five-star hotels. Instead they approach citizens in the street to learn about their concerns.
Anyway, the NDP must have liked it, because they reprinted it on their Web site.
By the way, what's the bristled thing in the NDP logo? It looks like a quiddich broom.
