Egypt’s strongest political opposition, the Muslim Brotherhood, has embarked on its electoral campaign in the city of Alexandria just days after announcing their fielded candidates. Placards bearing the group's electoral slogans “Islam Is the Solution” and, “Together We’ll Change” have been posted in the run up to Egypt’s parliamentary elections scheduled for Sunday, November 28.
Despite protests that the group’s theme is religiously based, courts have ruled the slogan as political rather than religious. According to MP Hamdy Hassan, the Supreme Electoral Commission had earlier attempted to issue a ban on the use of religiously-themed electoral slogans. He added however that if procedures had followed through it would represent a violation of the law.
Hassan urged the commission to simplify the necessary measures for the acquisition of voting cards, asserting that the authorities had intentionally impeded the electoral process by hindering procedures in favor of the ruling National Democratic Party. He stressed that voters in his constituency have not as yet received their cards even though they applied for them in March.
