Egypt's youth are an essential component of the 2020 parliamentary elections as candidates are put forward by the political parties’ Youth Coordination Committee. 

The committee, a political institution that includes representatives of all political parties, proposes candidates both through the National United Coalition and individual seats. 

Since its establishment two years ago, the YCC aims to grow political life and work with youth to put an end to the state of polarization and find common ground. YCC includes members of 25 parties.

We would like to congratulate Lasheen and wish her all the best in her new role and we strongly encourage all our GAPP alumni and students to achieve all the goals and keep making us proud. At GAPP, we graduate the next generation of public leaders. Our blended learning approach couples theoretical know-how with technical skills to enable graduates to function in a multi-media world.
