Five Egyptian political parties and movements unite to form the Coalition of Socialist Forces, they announced in a meeting on Tuesday, 10 May.

The newly formed coalition is made up of the Social Party of Egypt, the Democratic Labour Party, the Popular Socialist Coalition Party, Egypt Communist Party and Revolutionary Socialism. It aims to include under its umbrella other socialist movements in Egypt, which are considered fragmented.

“We [social political activists] are optimistic that the Coalition of Socialist Forces will bring a stronger socialist presence onto Egypt’s political scene” said Gigi Ibrahim a political activist.

During Tuesday’s meeting, there were intense discussions regarding the recent turn of events in the country and how it impacts the revolution.

The Coalition of Socialist Forces has appealed to all Egyptians, irrespective of their ideologies, to amass in Tahrir Square on Friday 13 May in a bid to protect the demands of revolution and for national unity.

Unity of democratic forces
The social development in Africa and Arab World has reached a step where any further steps towards democratization need to be socialist in nature. This without forgetting our respect to other democrats who do not consider themselves (yet) as socialists. Congratulations Dr Mikko Aalto
