The third phase of the Egyptian parliamentary elections will be carried out in nine Egyptian governorates which are al-Diqlheyah, al-Sharqeyah, Suhaj, the Red Sea, south and north of Sinai, Aswan, Kafer al-Sheikh and Dumiat.

The secretary general of the ruling national party in Egypt, Safwat al-Sharif, said that the party included in its ranks several independents so that its majority in the parliament stood at 205 of 302 seats.

The two final results of the two phases the Egyptian government announced that independent candidates got 85 seats out of which 76 seats for the Muslim Brothers while the performance of the official opposition came weak and won only 12 seats.

The Egyptian security forces arrested 200 members of the Muslim Brothers in a measure which the group said aims at undermining the opportunity to increase its share in the first phase of the elections.

The police and Muslim Brothers sources said that the acts of detention took place in al-Sharqeyah and al-Dqhelya governorates in the Egyptian Delta, Suhaj in al-Saeed (Upper Egypt) and in North Sinai. Muhammad Habib, the deputy Muslim Brothers Guide (leader) expected more acts of detention acts in the coming days, stressing that the police still have under arrest other hundreds detained in the first and second phase of the elections.

Habib accused the Egyptian government of seeking to prevent the Muslim Brothers from winning more than 100 seats. 49 of Muslim Brothers candidates are competing in the third round of the elections.
