Mohamed Bahaa El-Din Abu Shoka is an Egyptian laywer and politician. He is a professor of public law, and vice-chairman of the New Wafd Party.
In August 2010, he spoke out against boycotting the Egyptian parliamentary election, saying that it would be "like committing political suicide". In November 2010 he was announced as shadow minister of legal affairs in Al Wafd's shadow cabinet.
In May 2012 Abu Shoka questioned the secretive judicial decision to lift a travel ban on foreign NGO workers accused of raising US funds without appropriate government authorization.
In mid-June 2012 he was named as a member of the revamped Constituent Assembly of Egypt. Around that time he criticised the constitutionality of the law passed which attempted to bar Ahmed Shafik from standing in the 2012 presidential election.
