 The Muslim Brotherhood (MB) described that Shura Council and the People’s Assembly elections as the first steps towards the democratic transformation for which the Egyptian people revolted and sacrificed their sons who were killed and wounded for this great and noble objective.

In its weekly opinions ‘Views & Reviews’, last Wednesday, the MB said that the high number of candidates is a reflection of the atmosphere of freedom which the people felt. It also stated that the forming alliances are an expression of a sincere desire for national consensus with an eye to reducing the impact of fragmentation and bringing together national forces to work closer than ever.

 
The Brotherhood called for commitment to high principles and ethics and democracy during election campaigns, and throughout the elections processes, for safeguarding integrity and honesty, maintaining transparency, and accepting the results, as they come, and for everyone to work together for the noble interests of Egypt.

 
The Brotherhood also called upon the Egyptian people, each and every one, to realise that his/her voice and vote are important, vital and decisive, and to take the time and trouble to go out and cast his/her vote without delay or lethargy, and to choose the best and most efficient and suitable without regard to blood relationships, friendship or affiliation of any kind.

 
The Muslim Brotherhood also called for the formation of a popular committee to help men of the armed forces and police in securing the elections and protect the process from any attempts of fraud, aggression or bullying, so the elections would come through totally clean and perfectly fair, and so the world would hails their peace and harmony, just as it did the Egyptian revolution.

 
Further, the MB called on the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces to honour its repeated promises, and to respond to the demands of the majority of national, popular and social stakeholders, who lent it legitimacy in the first place, by passing a law to politically isolate those who corrupted the political life before the revolution and prevent them from running for Parliament.

 
The MB said: "After justice wisely solved their party and charged it with corruption, and with the whole nation – with all groups, movements and stakeholders – demanding that remnants of that party should be deprived of all political rights for five years at least, it is absurd that the military insists on allowing them to jump back to power, into the seats of the new parliament."

 
The Brotherhood stressed that: "These elections will be the harbinger of stability, the loss of which we have suffered for so long, as demonstrated these days in what is happening between judges and lawyers, between police officers and the Ministry of the Interior, and between various employees and the institutions they work in."

 
The MB demanded that everyone must show tolerance, patience and wisdom, and seek to resolve all their problems through dialogue and mutual understanding.

 
"The comprehensive solution to all Egypt’s problems will only come about when state institutions are rebuilt and power is handed over to a civilian government freely elected by the people in honest and fair elections. That solution, no doubt, requires patience and time," the MB asserted.
