Egypt’s Ex-Interim Prezy Hails Jammeh’s Support

The man who presided over the political transition in the Arab Republic of Egypt, His Excellency Counsellor Adly Mansour, has written to his Gambian counterpart, President Jammeh, applauding the support he had rendered to that North African nation and the will of its people. In his letter, Mansour wrote: “With the tenure of my mission as an interim President of the Arab Republic of Egypt coming to an end, I would like to seize this opportunity to write to Your Excellency once again expressing my appreciation for all the support you have lent to Egypt and to the will of its people, as was manifested on 30th June 2013, and was further reflected in the “Roadmap for the Future”.

It is within this context that the referendum on the new Egyptian constitution was held in January 2014, laying the foundation for the better future aspired by the Egyptian people, and as the new constitution consolidates the principles of democracy and multiplicity, safeguards freedoms and equality in rights and duties among all citizens. This was demonstrated by the unprecedented majority by which the new constitution was adopted.

The election of a new President, through transparent, free and fair elections on 26th and 27th May 2014, is indeed a milestone towards accomplishing the democratic institutions of a modern Egyptian State and that would achieve the goals of Egyptians in freedom, development and human dignity.

I would like to reiterate my deepest appreciation for your unwavering support, and I would like to reassure you that Egypt will continue to work in the coming phase with its African brothers to reinforce the ties of cooperation in all fields. Egypt will also continue to play its vital role – which it has always cherished – in supporting and championing the causes at our African continent and defending its interests in all regional and international fora.

In closing, I would like to seize this opportunity to express my utmost appreciation to Your Excellency, and my sincere wishes of everlasting progress and prosperity to all African people”.
