Ousting Morsi may restore investors' trust: Experts

Jul 5 2013, 2:52am CDT | by

Cairo, July 5 (IANS) Egyptian analysts expect investors to regain trust in their country, as profits of the Egyptian stock exchange reached 22.7 billion Egyptian pounds (over $3.2 billion) a day after the ouster of president Mohamed Morsi.

Cairo, July 5 — Egyptian analysts expect investors to regain trust in their country, as profits of the Egyptian stock exchange reached 22.7 billion Egyptian pounds (over $3.2 billion) a day after the ouster of president Mohamed Morsi.

The hike in the stock market was described by observers as "noteworthy", as its losses in the first six months of 2013 was estimated at 54.4 billion Egyptian pounds ($7.7 billion), when the country was engulfed in heated unrest and political division between pro-Morsi Islamists and anti-Morsi liberals, Xinhua reported.

Ehab al-Desouky, head of the Economic Center of Sadat Academy, said the stock exchange's profit was a "practical reaction" to the new trend in Egypt after Morsi's ouster.

"The stock exchange's hike depends on the investing decision, and the investing decision depends on the investor's trust in the future more than his trust in the present, which means that the bourse's rise today reflects the investors' mounting hope about Egypt's future after ousting the one year-lasted regime," Desouky said.

Egypt's armed forces removed Morsi from his post Wednesday, and put a roadmap for the transitional period, including forming a national government with broadened powers, suspending the current constitution, and forming a commission to prepare for constitutional amendments.

Desouky said the roadmap "assured" the investors about the "near future" of Egypt, as the first thing the investors care is "stability".

However, he believes that ending the political conflict and putting a roadmap "aren't enough" for assuring the investors.

"Ending the political unrest, appointing an interim president, and putting a roadmap can only ensure the investors in the 'short term'. What Egypt urgently needs now to encourage investments is a 'powerful cabinet' for the sake of the long-term planning," the expert said.

Echoing Desouky's view, banking expert Bassant Fahmy said the stock exchange's rise was a "promising" sign about the investors' belief in a stabilised future.

"This elevation is a good indication for the investors' trust in Egypt's situation, but forming a cabinet of 'proficient' ministers is much more important for the investors than assigning a new interim president," Fahmy said.

He said the cabinet is directly responsible for putting forward policies to facilitate the investors' work and for meeting peoples' aspirations to end their "indignation".

Fahmy also said that the security situation would be "much better" after ousting Morsi, and would therefore be another key reason for investors to come in.

"Fragile security affected the investors' turnout during Morsi's time, and it was out of the weak management of his loyal cabinet. I believe that all faults of the former regime will be avoided in the future," said Fahmy.

Monkey Cage: Why Egypt’s military orchestrated a massacre

Aug 22 2014 12:41pm CDT | Source: Post Politics: - The Washington Post

The Rabaa massacre of Aug. 14, 2013, was Egypt’s Tiananmen Square. Egyptian security forces killed at least 817 people on a single day at Rabaa al-Adawiya Square alone, and more than 1,000 when including the number of casualties across Egypt. It was the biggest mass killing of civilians in modern Egyptian history. The butchery did not take place under the cover of darkness, or in a remote corner of the country, but in broad daylight in Cairo. I was one of a number of journalist ...

The Anatomy of an Unfair Trial

Aug 18 2014 4:19pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

Sentencing a political opponent to death after a show trial is no different to taking him out on the street and shooting him. In fact, it is worse because using the court system as a tool of state repression makes a mockery of the rule of law. Egypt's constitution guarantees the right to be presumed innocent. And yet in a recent case, an Egyptian judge -- after a "trial" lasting 100 minutes -- sentenced 529 Muslim Brotherhood ...

The Obama Doctrine: Pretend to Give a Damn–Until You Don't Have To

Aug 8 2014 10:13pm CDT | Source: Big Government

For years, commentators have attempted to peg down just what the Obama Doctrine is. His allies have labeled the Obama Doctrine a form of realism about the limits of American power. His critics have labeled the Obama Doctrine “leading from behind.”   In 2009, President Obama came up with his own definition of an Obama Doctrine: “we're only one nation... the problems that we confront, whether it's drug cartels, climate change, terrorism, you name it, can ...
