Video by François PICARD , Willy BRACCIANO , Karim HAKIKI , Anelise Borges

Latest update : 2011-11-27

Egyptians are demanding democracy and, in increasing numbers, stronger Islamic ties to the state. But what do these seismic shifts in Egyptian politics and society mean for women and the Christian minority? FRANCE24’s team in Cairo investigates.

Egyptians are set to vote in legislative elections on November 28, nine months after former President Hosni Mubarak's regime was toppled.

Follow FRANCE 24's special coverage of the historic event.

FRANCE 24's François Picard and Vanessa Burggraf will present three programmes from Cairo featuring special reports on a range of issues including the future of the democratic movement, the hopes and aspirations of the Egyptian people and the global and regional implications of the revolution in the world's largest Arab nation.

Tune in to our special edition on the Egyptian elections on November 25, 26 and 27 at 2:10 pm Paris Time
