The "legitimate" teachers' committee condemned the unethical measures practiced against them with the elimination of their names from the nominees list.

The elections are scheduled to take place this coming Wednesday December 30. The teachers described the elimination as a "shameful stripping of their rights".

 

In a statement in which "Ikhwanweb" received a copy Dr Adel Abdul Gawad chairman of the former committee and secretary Dr Nasr Radwan stressed their desire for all who cared for Egypt and its Tertiary Education to offer support and condemn the elimination of their names. They asserted that this was a violation of free will demonstrating the board's irresponsibility in adding and deleting names to suit a specific purpose. The statement added that Cairo University and its teaching staff deserved better as it was the "Mother of all Egyptian Universities" with an impressive and distinguished history.

 

Abdul Gawad objected that after 60 days of anticipation it was a disappointment to find that names were scratched, eliminated and swapped revealing poor judgment on the part of the electoral board. "The Cairo University is entering its centennial and it saddens its teachers who strive to maintain the University's prestige to see differences and bias with regards to the nontransparent teacher's club elections".

 

The statement concluded that the Governor of Giza was responsible for this misconduct where he ordered for the so called 'exile' of the current board and the appointing of a new board stressing that all forms of democracy were denied.
