A meeting on Wednesday by the political opposition to discuss possible boycotting of upcoming parliamentary elections ended with undecided responses still awaiting the government's decision concerning demands for political reform and guarantees for transparent elections
 
Wafd, leftist Tagammu, pan-Arab Nasserist, and the Democratic Front parties' representatives participated in discussions abstaining from clearly suggesting whether they will field candidates or not in response to former IAEA chief Dr. Mohamed ElBaradei's call.
 
Amr Hashem Rabea, an elections expert at Al-Ahram Center for Political and Strategic Studies maintained that Independent political analysts, ruled out that the opposition would challenge the NDP’s hegemony in any upcoming election since they believed the opposition are currently fragmented
 
Rabea highlighted that each party has shown contradicting actions over the last couple of months concerning numerous aspects including coalition with Egypt 's strongest and most popular political opposition the Muslim Brotherhood movement.

Analysts caution that NDP and opposition parties may engage in a back door deal whereby fielded candidates from these parties secure seats in the next 518-seat parliament in order to lessen the Muslim Brotherhood’s chances in the elections.

During the 2005 parliamentary election, in 2005 the NDP won 318 seats while the MB acquired 88 seats one fifth of the parliamentary seats in an unprecedented win.
