Political activist and former parliamentary candidate Gamila Ismail has been appointed organisational secretary of the Constitution Party, the liberal party announced on its official Facebook page Wednesday.

The organisation secretariat that Ismail will take charge of, the party added, will be tasked with drawing up a special committee to oversee internal party elections this summer.

The Constitution Party, which has drawn several of post-revolution Egypt's most prominent political and intellectual figures, has faced serious challenges in recent months, with a number of its leading members – including legal expert Hossam Eissa – tendering resignations.

As a result of reported internal conflicts between its old guard and younger members, the Constitution Party recently announced plans to bring internal elections forward to June, instead of September as had been previously planned.

According to a party statement released earlier, neither party founder Mohamed ElBaradei nor any other member of the party's old guard, will contest the upcoming polls so as to "give an opportunity to the party's young cadres."

Real Threat To El Baradei
Gemila Ismail should challenge El Baradei for the head of Constitution Party in the internal party election. She showed she possesses charisma by being able to calm down party members who were disgruntled with the leadership. Hopefully she has more courage to fight in the coming Egyptian elections.

Lol, who else is waiting for ElBaradei to boycott these elections too! (Who for someone in his party to get mad and rebel when their side looses their internal elections). Egyptian politics is the best SOAP Opera. Too bad real people get hurt :-(
