Dr. Mohamed Morsi, Chairman of the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP), stated that: The majority in the upcoming parliament will form the government, which will be a coalition government.

Dr. Morsi, in a press conference held Tuesday in front of Shubra Gardens Primary School in The Coast constituency, stressed that the Egyptian people are able to think and choose those who will represent them in parliament, and that there will be no division between Muslims and Christians, old and young, according to the rules of political action, which require non-discrimination among them.

In response to a question about fears that the forthcoming parliament will have an Islamist majority, which will influence drafting of the new constitution, which will mean the said constitution is dominated by Islamic principles, Dr. Morsi explained that the law rules all civil transactions: "I do not imagine that any constitution in Egypt will do away with the Article II which states that Muslims are to be governed by Sharia (Islamic law) and Coptic Christians by rules of their own faith."

He also stressed that the electoral process is going very smoothly, and that the Egyptian people are able to express their opinions freely, that the polling stations are open to all and enjoy good security cover, and that very few polling stations in Cairo suffered some problems. One of the most negative issues was the delay in opening some of the polling stations. But that mistake has been rectified. He added that it was incorrect that there is bickering or disagreement between the Salafis and the Muslim Brotherhood and the Egyptian bloc, stating that there is no real fight between them, and that the existing difference is one of political, election programs only.

Dr. Mohamed Morsi extended a special greeting to the Egyptian people, noting that the Egyptian people continued the celebration of the blessed revolution on the second day of the election and offered the world evidence that this nation is alive and well and that it has reached the proverbial political adulthood, and a level of awareness that enabled it to head en masse to polling stations in an unprecedented turnout amounting so far to more than 40% of those eligible to vote.
