ABSTRACT
The article presents information about Egypt. The country's ruling National Democratic Party (NDP) is hegemonic in the polity. The NDP is moving cautiously in the face of an economic downturn and the increased support enjoyed by banned Islamic groups in the wake of the Palestinian intifada and the U.S. attack on Iraq. On the downside, however, the country's relations with Israel have often drawn fierce opposition from those who reject the peace process. The death of Palestinian Authority President Yasir Arafat has lent even greater importance to Egypt's role in the regional peace process.
