Number of Egyptian researchers discussed the e-government issue in the context of local channels. This research is conducted to add a better understanding for citizen's perception regarding their e-government web portal. In addition, the research will illustrate the relation between ease of doing business and e-government services usage. The lack of similar research conducted in Middle Eastern countries in general and in Egypt in particular is a good reason to conduct this research. This paper presents the results of a survey on e-participation in Egypt and what is the perception of Egyptian citizens regarding the e-government. This survey will measure the e-government services in Egypt; this will be through a questionnaire using The Electronic Government Satisfaction Model Horan and Abhichandani (2006).

This part will use the Likert scale (likert scale is designed to examine how strongly subjects agree or disagree with statements on a five point scale). The result for coding the questionnaire will be 51 variables; all of them are coded 1 to 2, 5, 6 or 7. Number of respondents is 130. Around 71% of respondents are between 20 and 35 years old and 21% are under 20. The questionnaire will produce some statistical results with a description and frequency of happenings.
