After Sisi’s statements about the conditions for freedom of expression, ElBaradei tweets a quote from George Orwell


Dubai, United Arab Emirates (CNN) – Former Egyptian Vice President Dr. Mohamed ElBaradei posted a tweet on his Twitter account about “the meaning of freedom”, after President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi’s statements about the conditions for freedom of expression and opposition.

ElBaradei’s tweet was a quote from the late English writer George Orwell, author of the famous 1984 novel, in which he said: “If there is any meaning to freedom, it is to have the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.”

In another tweet, ElBaradei said, “The educated person is a basic asset in the development process and an essential pillar of the state. Education and no other is the beginning.”

On Tuesday, Al-Sisi stated that the expression and opposition have two conditions, the first of which is for the purpose of improving the conditions of the people, and the second is for the speaker to be familiar with what he says.
