Storyline

Madame President follows NOURA SA'AD, a deeply idealistic cabinet minister who becomes the first female president of the fictional Middle Eastern country Jabalein. Following her predecessor's death and his deputy's shameful resignation, President Sa'ad sets out to reconnect with her citizens before elections are held in one year. But Sa'ad has inherited a country restless for change, and generations of youth desperate for work. From water scarcity to refugee rights and corruption, Noura must crack some of the country's most stubborn problems, while fending off her most rigid opponents, including the formidable Speaker of the Assembly, BASSEM, and neighboring President GENERAL NAJEM. Helping her navigate this political labyrinth is the cautious but pragmatic Chief of Staff MALIK alongside Press Secretary SAMAR, who wrangles a media bent on dissecting Noura's every move.

Enjoyable and Excellent for Arabic Language Learners
28 May 2018 | by rafikaSee all my reviews

This is a fun, family-friendly program that introduces a controversial theme in a completely plausible way. Viewers will get a sensitive look at modern Arab culture and some of the issues people realistically face in the Middle East. My daughter and I appreciated the clear enunciation, which helped us understand a dialect of the language we know well. Despite the low budget, the entertainment value was high and the acting was superb. The cast made the story credible and the characters likeable.I hope there will be a second season of Madam President in the future.
