On the International Day of Democracy, 15/9/2022the FDHRD affirms that democracy is one of the universally recognized ideals based on common values shared by people in different parts of the world, regardless of cultural, political, social and economic differences.

In 2007, the United Nations General Assembly decided to celebrate September 15 as the International Day of Democracy – with the aim of promoting and upholding the principles of democracy – and invited all Member States and organizations to celebrate this day in an appropriate manner that contributes to raising public awareness.
For his part, Saeed Abdel Hafez, Chairman of the FDHRD, affirmed his firm and explicit support for democracy, human rights, the rule of law, respect for international standards and basic principles of legitimacy, and adherence to the rule of law, in Egypt and all over the world. He also stressed the importance of raising awareness of democracy in societal circles, especially among youth and women groups, which creates a society aware of its civic role.
