Statement by the Press Secretary, Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan, on the Results of the Election for the Egyptian People’s Assembly
TOKYO, Japan, January 25, 2012/African Press Organization (APO)/ — On Wednesday, January 21, Egypt’s High Judicial Elections Commission announced the final tally of votes from the election for seats in the country’s People’s Assembly. Japan welcomes the smooth conclusion of the election.
Japan expects that along with the inauguration of the new People’s Assembly, other aspects of the democratization process – such as elections for the Shura Council, the establishment of a new constitution, and elections for president – will proceed smoothly and as planned, and that the shift toward a civilian government will be completed.
Japan hopes that Egypt will continue to contribute to peace and prosperity in the region as a moderate and stable force in the Middle East and North Africa. To that end, Japan will support reform initiatives toward a democratic transition.
