Hala Shukrallah - President - Constitution Party, Egypt

More than 500 supporters of Egypt's former president Mohammed Morsi have been sentenced to death. It's the latest crackdown on the Muslim Brotherhood - now banned under the country's new constitution. HARDtalk speaks to the newly elected leader of a party founded to 'save' the revolution of three years ago. Hala Shukrallah is the first female leader of a political party in Egypt and the first Christian. But in a country polarised between the military and Islamists, the liberal secular opposition have struggled to gain support. Does Egypt deserve a better opposition?
