Gamal Mubarak faints at NDP General Secretariat meeting
He is reported to have worked tirelessly lately with preparations for the major constitutional amendments,that passed parliament yesterday and will be presented to the people in a referendum on March 26th.
The report also tells us that he is due to leave for Paris to go furniture hunting, presumably with his wife to be, Khadija. The couple are expected to tie the knot during the summer. Let´s hope for a speedy recovery and a beautiful time in the most romantic city in the world apart from Cairo.
The wedding will be biggest social gathering for years in Egypt, and local and foreign dignitaries alike are expected to attend.
Gamal Mubarak is the undersecretary of the NDP and chairman of the influential policy committee.
UPDATE: This is fellow blogger Ahmad Sherif´s take on Gamal Mubaraks trip to the city of lights. Dosen´t it look a little bit like Loius Farouk, or is it Louis Gamal?
UPDATE II: On the second of April, the independent Egyptian daily Masry al youm carried the long anticipated news for a wedding date. The religious cermony will take place in Cairo on the 28th of April and the wedding party will be in Sharm al Shaikh, The Mubarak family´s home away from Korba.
