Last Night’s Talk Shows on 25 January 2021

The start of Egypt’s vaccine program held the attention of the nation’s talking heads for most of the night last night, which we cover in full in this morning’s Covid Watch, above.

GERD dominated the conversation in the House yesterday as the irrigation and agriculture ministers took their turns to address the new batch of MPs. Irrigation Minister Mohamed Abdel Aty blamed the failure of the talks on Ethiopia's “intransigence” and said that reaching an agreement that safeguards Egypt’s water quota is currently “the most important file for all state authorities.” Mohamad Aboul Enein, the new Deputy House Speaker, called on the government to reach out to the US, UN and European Union to convince them to weigh in more forcefully on Egypt’s side. Al Hayah Al Youm's Lobna Assal (watch, runtime: 7:49) and Ala Mas’ouleety’s Ahmed Moussa (watch, runtime: 5:02 | 4:21 | 4:35) both had coverage of the session.

The Pharaohs’ qualification to the handball quarter-finals got attention across the airwaves after the team drew 25-25 with Slovenia last night (Masaa DMC | watch, runtime: 1:30) (Kelma Akhira | watch, runtime: 2:00), ( Ala Mas’ouleety | watch, runtime: 1:33).
