The Muslim Brotherhood's online campaign to gather signatures in support of the National Association for Change's "Seven Demands for Reform" charter has attracted attention both in Egypt and abroad. The petition has successfully acquired over 573,000 signatures on the MB website and 100, 000 on the NAC website 44 days into its launching totaling an impressive 673,000 signatures nearing its target of 1 million.

The petitioners called on all Egyptians to participate eagerly and enthusiastically in this campaign, in order to eliminate corruption, prevent fraud, stop torture, and preserve the dignity of the Egyptian citizen internally and externally, through putting an end to the state of emergency.

The seven points of the charter backed by the Brotherhood include:

1. Ending the state of emergency
2. The empowerment of the Egyptian judiciary to supervise the full electoral process as a whole.
3. Control of the elections by local civil society organizations and international levels.
4. Providing equal opportunities in the media for all candidates, especially in the presidential election.
5. Enabling Egyptians abroad to exercise their right to vote in embassies and consulates in Egypt.
6. Ensuring the right to stand in presidential elections without arbitrary restrictions in line with Egypt's obligations under the International Convention for Civil and Political Rights, and limiting the right to run for the presidency to two terms.
7. Elections by individual identification social numbers

The campaign was launched by the Muslim Brotherhood's chairman Dr. Mohamed Badie in collaboration with Dr. Mohamed ElBaradei former IAEA chief. Badie ascertained that the MB supports the principles ElBaradei adopts and calls for. Dr. Badie emphasized that"These are not the demands of Dr. Mohammed ElBaradei only, but they are demands that gained the consensus of all active political actors in the society".
