Mamdouh Ramzi, appointed member of Egypt’s Shura Council (SC), said that Christians are represented by 20 members in the SC, their strongest bloc in sixty years, saying: “Christians were never represented by so many under any former government in Egypt for long decades”.


During a televised interview on the satellite TV channel ‘Sada Albalad’, Ramzi said: “Certain opponents and critics object and criticize just for the sake of protest. If Christians are represented by a few members in any State institution, they accuse the regime of marginalizing them. But if Christians are represented by such a large number, they raise questions and suspicions”.

Ramzi added that he was not appointed to Shura Council based on Church nominations, but was chosen as a public opposition figure.
