Dutch Media Coverage of Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt

14 July 2011

 

Radio Netherlands Worldwide carries a feature on upcoming elections in Egypt this fall, describing the role of the Muslim Brotherhood in the country as ‘the party to beat’. It follows the attendance of two party representatives at a workshop, given by the Dutch consultancy bureau BKB at the Dutch embassy, which was based on discussing election campaigning. The feature describes the Muslim Brotherhood as transitioning from underground movement to political party; representative Al Abadi’s notes the techniques for photographic campaigning learned. RNW notes the success of the Muslim Brotherhood in 2004 and increasing organization and recognition, but also that the organization “has some way to go before working openly”
