The name of the alliance refers to the revolution that overthrew Hosni Mubarak on 25 January 2011 and the overthrow of Mohamed Morsi on 30 June 2013.[3] In July 2014, members of the April 6 Youth Movement and Tamarod stated that they would join the alliance.[3] The Free Egyptians Party stated that it might join the alliance.[3] The alliance stated in March 2015 that it was not part of the Reawakening of Egypt list.[4]

Abdel-Hakim Abdel Nasser, son of former Egyptian president Gamal Abdel Nasser, was one of the founders of the alliance.[5]


As of January 2018, the 25-30 Alliance was led by Haitham El-Hariri.[1]

Policies and strategy

The alliance included 25% quotas for women and youth in its electoral lists.[3]

The electoral strategy of the members of the alliance was to run for individual seats rather than as a formal group.[6]
