Ghad El-Thawra Party (Arabic: حزب غد الثورةḤizb Ghad el-Thawra; "Revolution's Tomorrow Party"), is a Egyptian political party that was approved on 9 October 2011.[2] Headed by Ayman Nour, it was a split of the El-Ghad Party. Nevertheless, the "Revolution's Tomorrow Party" still uses the name El-Ghad (The Tomorrow Party) on its website and communiques [1].

The Ghad El-Thawra Party was contesting the Egyptian parliamentary election, 2011–2012 with fifteen candidates (thirteen for the lower house and two for the upper) as part of the Muslim Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party-led Democratic Alliance for Egypt.[2]

Ayman Nour has been tightly associated with both the El-Ghad name and party, even being accused of internal monopoly by other party members.[2] Since both Nour and Moussa fractions were using (and still are) the same name and insignia (e.g.: Ghad El-Thawra website[5]), it was often difficult to tell them apart. For instance, Liberal International lists El-Ghad, specifying its leader as Ayman Nour, as an observer member.[6] Many poll and media outlets used the term "El-Ghad" without specifying which party or faction they are referring to,[7] although they often meant the Ayman Nour Ghad El-Thawra faction.[8][9]

Name Confusion

The party platform called for:


The Ghad El-Thawra party supported the 2011 Egyptian revolution. Nour was reportedly close to the Muslim Brotherhood; the headquarters of the party were burned down in March 2013.[4]

In 2005, just before Nour being sentenced, the El-Ghad Party split in two factions. One was headed by Moussa Moustafa Moussa, the other by Nour’s (now former) wife Gameela Ismail.[2] Legal battle ensued between both factions, both claiming legitimacy and simultaneously using the party name and insignia. The final court ruling in May 2011 was in favor of Moussa.[3] Ayman Nour hence filed for a new party, "Ghad El-Thawra Party" or "Revolution's Tomorrow Party", which was approved on 9 October 2011.[2]
