Ding Dong Gomaa is gone

Finally some good news on the egyptian political landscape: The Wafd Party finally removed Nooman "walking skeleton" Gomma from his position. YAY. This is good because the Wafd party has the potential of becoming a great opposition party in Egypt, already having its old name and numerous members and established organization. The only person who used to keep it from improving or playing politics correctly was its leader, who is so out of touch and so obsolte it's not even funny. What's even better is the fact that the new temporary leader is Mahmoud Abaza, and he is a seasoned politician who wants to win and more importantly knows how to win ( he took out Zakariah Azmy's brother in the parliamnetary elections), and that's the kind of person they need at the helm. Update: It seems seneferu agrees with me!

Sandy, either you had one too many scotch´s to drink or the L.A sun simply went to your head.
" Wafd has the potential of becoming a great opposition party in Egypt"..you must be kidding me, they have history yes but to regain the respect & trust again will take some exceptional leadership skills, Plans & schemes to get the street man behind them , policies that target the majority of egyptians & colossal amount of work to be done.
I dont think Wafd can do it anymore. Neither does the Left Tagamo3 pàrty capable of amassing people behind them. the magic word nowadays & for the near future is ISLAMIC, unfortunately.

You disagree about all what i said or just a particular part?
I forgot to add that some parties might in the future adapt some so called islamic policies to maintain a presence in the political arena.

anyway, as i always say, Only Time will Tell...right?
