Egypt to demolish building of Dissolved Party that ruled under Mubarak

Egypt’s cabinet tasked on Wednesday the Cairo governorate to demolish the building of the defunct National Democratic Party (NDP) which ruled under toppled President Hosni Mubarak.

The cabinet said in a statement that the land upon which the party was built would be utilised after the demolition process is over. The demolition will be carried out by the Armed Forces Engineering Authority, the cabinet added.

Mubarak, who was overthrown in February 2011 in response to mass demonstrations, occupied the position of head of the NDP since his accession to power in 1981 and until 2011.

An administrative court dissolved the NDP, Egypt’s ruling party from 1978 until 2011, in April 2011 after the headquarters of the party was set ablaze by anti-Mubarak protesters in January 2011.
