The Egyptian center for public opinion research Baseera conducted a poll on the Egyptian public’s knowledge of the new president’s name, the prime minister’s name and their opinions about appointing El-Beblawi as prime minister and ElBaredei as vice president.

The poll results show that 51% know the interim president’s name and mentioned it correctly and 5% don’t know his name but know that he was the President of the Supreme Constitutional Court while 44% said they don’t know the name or mentioned a wrong name.

The percentage of those who do not know the interim president’s name increases from 35% in urban areas to 51% in rural areas. The percentage also increases from 34% in urban governorates to 42% in Lower Egypt and 52% in Upper Egypt.

The results indicate that a higher percentage of males know the interim president’s name than females as 56%  of females don’t know the interim president’s name compared to 31% of males.

The poll results reveal that the respondents’ level of education has an obvious impact on knowing the interim president’s name. The percentage of those who don’t know the interim president’s name decreases from 61% among those with less than intermediate education to 11% among university graduates.

Respondents were asked whether they know the prime minister’s name. The results show that two thirds don’t know the prime minister’s name. This percentage increases from 57% in urban areas to 75% in rural areas. It also increases from 54% in urban governorates to 67% in Lower Egypt and 74% in Upper Egypt.

Asking the respondents about their opinion regarding choosing Hazem El-Beblawi to be appointed as prime minister revealed that 60% are unsure about that choice while 25% said that it is a good choice, 10% said that it is an average choice and 6% said that it is a bad choice.  The higher the educational level the higher the percentage of the respondents who said that El-Beblawi is a good choice and the lower the percentage of those who are unsure about that choice.

Around 27% see that choosing Mohamed ElBaradei as vice president is a good choice while 15% consider it an average choice and 30% consider it a bad choice. Around 28% said that they are unsure about that choice.
