The General Secretariat of the ruling National Democratic Party (NDP) approved a media plan submitted by Dr. Aliyuddin Hilal, the party"s Secretary of Information under a request from Safwat Al Sharif and the policies committee secretary, Gamal Mubarak. This media plan aims to improve the image of the party in front of the public opinion.
 
The plan highlights the need to focus on the NDP"s 12 newspapers, topped by Al-Watani Al-Yom, aims to get closer to the public issues and concentrating on files of the price hikes and the crisis of bread, and clarifying the party"s role in solving these problems.
 
The plan recommends issuing twelve more newspapers to be mouthpieces for the NDP"s secretariats nationwide and to be under central supervision from the party"s General Secretariat. The provincial secretariat that issues the newspaper must- according to this plan- implement instructions of the General Secretariat in coordination with the editorial managements of these newspapers to have a voice through which the party can show its achievements nationwide.
 
The plan includes also urging the party to launch dozens websites to face the sprawling network of websites created by the Muslim Brotherhood (MB), Egypt "s biggest opposition group.
 
 
Assem Shalabi, a Muslim Brotherhood leader and chairman of its media section, confirmed to Ikhwanweb that these measures are carried out along with a security campaign carried out by the Egyptian regime against the Muslim Brotherhood members and media leaders. This unfair campaign included the recent arrest of eng. Khaled Hamza, the editor-in-chief of Ikhwanweb.com, and hunting Abdul Galil Al Sharnoubi, the editor-in-chief of Ikhwanonline.com. Shalabi expected that the campaigns and cyberspace plans of the National Democratic Party are doomed to fail in improving the image of the regime whose crimes and violations are topping headlines of all media outlets.
 
Asked why the regime commits these violations and tries to do these plans, Shalabi attributed them to the wins achieved by the Muslim Brotherhood websites. He added that the MB"s websites contributed to expose the Egyptian regime"s violations and crimes in the run-up to the local councils elections which will be held next April, 8th. The MB websites showed the entire world how the Egyptian regime deals with the opposition.
