Last Night’s Talk Shows on 31 January 2021

Egypt getting its hands on its first shipments of the AstraZeneca vaccine today was the talk of the town last night. Masaa DMC’s Eman El Hosary spoke to UK-based pathology professor Diaa El-Din Kamel to reiterate the vaccine’s minimal side effects and easy storage conditions (watch, runtime: 15:41), while Al Hayah Al Youm's Lobna Assal also took note (watch, runtime: 1:29).

Also on the airwaves last night:

  • Aboul Gheit staying on at the Arab League? Egypt has nominated Arab League Secretary General Ahmed Aboul Gheit for a second five-year term, Ittihadiya said in a statement. President Abdel Fattah El Sisi called on Arab leaders to back his bid to stay on as the league’s chief (Lamees El Hadidi on Kelma Akhira | watch, runtime: 02:37) (Lobna Assal on Al Hayah Al Youm | watch, runtime: 08:41).
  • The new Traffic Act is still under discussion at the House Defense and National Security Committee, and is likely facing some reworking as some proposed fines appear to be too hefty, said committee member Yahya Al-Kedwani. (Amr Adib on El Hekaya | watch, runtime: 6:31)
