Some Egyptian newspapers reported on Monday that the Egyptian ruling regime plans to dissolve the People’s Assembly, while it is rigging the Shura Council elections to exclude all Muslim Brotherhood candidates. It’s worth mentioning that the current Egyptian House has 88 Muslim Brotherhood MPs in addition to opposition MPs, causing a continuous headache to the authoritarian regime specially when all opposition powers closed ranks.
 
For his part, Mohsen Radi, a member of the People’s Assembly for the Muslim Brotherhood group, says:
 
" it is unlikely that the regime dissolves parliament. It is actually facing hardships inside parliament but these hardships will increase if it dissolves the People’s Assembly. This is because people stick to their representatives in the People’s Assembly, unlike the Shura Council that all people know that it is useless and that most of its members are appointed. If people ignored violations in the in Municipal or Shura Council elections, but they will never ignore any government step towards rigging People’s Assembly elections. The regime wishes to do so, but it does not dare to do this step.
 
Radi added in a statement to Ikhwanweb that the president must have justification to issue a decree of dissolving the parliament. If there is no reason, he can’t do so unless he holds a referendum according to the last constitutional amendments. If the regime thinks it can dissolve the House whenever it wants, it can’t do so because the future will be more difficult than the present. If this really happened, the Muslim Brotherhood will unite with people to continue the battle for reform. We will never stop short of addressing Egyptian people’s needs".
 
Hussein Ibrahim, the assistant secretary general of the Muslim Brotherhood parliamentary bloc, said to Ikhwanweb:
 
"What concerns as as MB parliamentarians is that we continue fighting corruption and call on all opposition MPs to fight corruption even if the House is dissolved. The regime has rigged the Shura elections to exclude any real opposition specially the Muslim Brotherhood after the prominent supervisory role which they are carrying out in the House. So we will continue fighting corruption whatever the consequences.
 
Ibrahim added that:" The latest constitutional amendments have unfortunately authorized the president to dissolve parliament on condition that he gives reasons for this decision. We will use our constitutional right if this takes place. The regime can’t face the public opinion unless it provides a reasonable justification for such serious steps".
