THE DEBATE

A live debate on the topic of the day, with four guests. From Monday to Thursday at 7.10 pm Paris time.

Latest update : 2011-01-27

After Tunisia, Egypt?

With a social network-powered protest, an ageing president and an election due in September, is Egypt en route to becoming another Tunisia? Not quite yet, warns François Picard’s panel, but the warning signs are there, especially if the cost of living keeps rising with oil prices and inflation.

A debate with François Picard and guests:

Eberhard KIENLE, Grenoble-based political scientist at French National Research Center (CNRS)
Ygal SAADOUN, Former France 24 Cairo Correspondent
Essam EL ERIAN, Muslim Brotherhood spokesperson
Lahcen ACHY, Senior economist, Carnegie Middle East Center
