According to Alaa Abdel Monem, media spokesman of the People’s Parliament, the parliament will announce its founding statement and the initial list of members next Sunday at the Al-Wafd party’s headquarters.

Saad Aboud, member of the Founding Committee, stated that they chose to announce their founding statement from Al-Wafd headquarters because it is the house of the nation. He stressed that Al-Sayed Al-Badawy, chairman of Al-Wafd, expressed his approval to announce the parliament’s first statement from there until they decide to host it on a permanent basis.


Aboud added that if Al-Wafd refused to host the parliament, they would study the possibility of holding the sessions of parliament at the Front Party or Al-Ghad Party until a final agreement is reached on the permanent headquarters of the People’s Parliament.


He pointed out that there are ongoing communications with all members of the parliament to agree on a date and place for the opening session during which the president and two deputies will be elected.

Ayman Nour, founder of Al-Ghad party, called for having the main headquarters of the parliament at Al-Ghad headquarters downtown, especially after he designed a similar hall to that of the official parliament.


Mustafa Bakry denied withdrawal from the organizational structure of the People’s Parliament saying that he has concerns regarding some of the suggestions made by members to have an observer in the Euro-Mediterranean parliament.

Bakry said: “The People’s Parliament is not a parallel parliament and the aim of founding it is to expose the regime. We are not against the institutional structure of the state.”
