The initial list of candidates' names to field in the parliamentary elections has been released in most Egyptian governorates this evening.
An early reading reveals that many Muslim Brotherhood nominees have been eliminated from the list of numerous governorates.
 
Dr Mohamed Saad Ketatni, chairman of the MB parliamentary bloc was included in the list for the Minya governorate. Other MBs on the list for Minya include: Bahaa Attia a current member of the parliamentary bloc, Mohamed Abdel-Azim, and Abdul Rahim Abdul Salam.
 
Alexandria's MBs, however, have not been announced and the group has in fact been the victim of rising tensions especially with the elimination of Brotherhood members who had intended to field in the workers' sectors. Deputy head of the parliamentary bloc, Hussein Ibrahim, was crossed off the list earlier along with 3 other MB nominees.
 
The Beheira governorate has had names announced, however, sectors have been changed and the MB Legal Committee has filed a lawsuit to the Administrative Court against the measure.
 
In Port Said the list included Dr Akram Al-Shaer and Dr Ahmed Al-Khalawany for the parliamentary elections and in Luxor, the Muslim Brotherhood candidates included Mustafa Abu Shareefa. 
 
In Qena, Muhammad Abdul Nabi, and Hesham El-Qadi were also added to the list. Four names were excluded from the nominee list in Fayoum.
 
Many governorates have not received their final lists but it is expected they will be announced tomorrow despite it being a public holiday. Appeals will be handed in since Muslim Brotherhood candidate names have been arbitrarily omitted revealing early rigging.
