Egypt: Brotherhood party to compete for over 40% of parliamentary seats

The Muslim Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party has submitted its
parliamentary candidacy list to the elections committee of the Democratic
Coalition, of which the party is a member among 42 other parties.

The list indicates that the party would compete for over 40 percent of
parliamentary seats under the individual and combined candidacy systems.

Meanwhile, Saad al-Husseini resigned from the group’s Guidance Bureau when
he learned that the group is not fielding candidates in the elections. Since
he now plans to run as a member of the Freedom and Justice Party, rules bar
him from continuing to be a member of the Guidance Bureau.

Among the party’s 200 candidates are Essam al-Erian and Mohamed al-Biltagy.
