We share the International Young Democrat Union’s concerns about recent developments in Egypt. In a statement on 8 July, the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, my right hon. Friend the Member for Richmond (Yorks) (Mr Hague), stated that a swift return to democratic processes in Egypt was crucial. We urge all parties in Egypt to work together to agree a constitution and bring about elections that can be freely contested by all as soon as possible, and bring about a return to a civilian government.
