Sources have maintained that authorities have ordered the MB candidates to be followed during their campaigns where forces have gone as far as kidnapping and detaining supporters and publicists in broad daylight. The Beheira and Sharqiya governorates have been the latest target of the regime.


Forces stormed headquarters while looking for pamphlets or published material which was used for campaigning. The kidnappings are an attempt by the regime to force independent candidates running to withdraw from the elections last-minute.

In a statement to 'Ikhwanweb', running candidate for the Beheira constituency Mohamed Alzayat, ascertained that these illegitimate arrests and detentions will not deter the Muslim Brotherhood from continuing their peaceful struggle and call for political reform. He continued "On the contrary it only proves that the regime, with its Interior Ministry lacks the ability to follow through with the allegations that the elections will be free and fair. Although there are no guarantees that the authorities will not continue employing these suppressive measures against free citizens, we the Muslim Brotherhood bloc, will continue urging for modifications and continue participating in elections and calling for the freedom of rights of all Egyptian citizens stipulated in the constitution".
