In an opinion article in Al Masry Al Youm, Hassan Nafaa writes: “Al-Dostour’s recently dismissed chief editor, Ibrahim Eissa, was not fired due to ordinary disputes over administrative or editorial issues. The decision to remove Eissa was without a doubt political.” He mentions that Eissa clashed with the newspapers new owner, Wafd Party leader Al-Sayed al-Bedawy, in part because of “extremely sensitive political circumstances” in Egypt. For instance, the Wafd Party recently agreed to take part in the upcoming parliamentary elections without first ensuring that they will be free and fair. Moreover, the Wafd party has helped the regime attack other political opposition movements in Egypt. Nafaa asks: “Does al-Badawy not know that the only one who stands to benefit from the sacking of a valiant opposition figure like Eissa is the regime itself? Why then would the Wafd leader decide to do such a thing?”

Meanwhile, al-Bedawy sold all of his shares in the paper to Al Doustour’s executive chairman of the board of directors, Reda Edward. Edward reportedly bought the shares to prevent “the paper’s reporters from taking control of the board,” and stated that Eissa will not return to the independent daily.
