What we’re tracking on 13 April

El Sisi to hold second ‘civil society’ meeting: President Abdel Fattah El Sisi will meet today with a number of members of parliament, representatives of the National Human Rights Council, heads of professional syndicates, labour representatives and our sainted fellow members of the press corps to discuss “issues of national importance,” a source at Ittihadiya said, according to Al Shorouk. El Sisi began the series of meetings with civil society types on 22 March, telling them at the time they needed to engage and help make a difference: “I am the one who stands at the face of the canon, I am the one with 90 mn Egyptian lives in my hands, you can’t just come here, talk and walk away,”

Also today: The three-day café / restaurant equipment and furniture exhibition Cafex kicks off in Cairo, and in Cambridge, MA, Harvard Law School is playing host to “As Goes Egypt, So Goes the Middle East.”
