Hussein Ibrahim Elected Deputy Speaker of 19 Islamic Parliaments
Delegations of 19 Arab and Islamic countries participated in the International Forum for Islamic Parliaments (IFIP) in Jakarta, Indonesia, and elected Hussein Mohamed Ibrahim, the deputy chairman of the Muslim Brotherhood parliamentary bloc in the Egyptian People’s Assembly, as a senior deputy speaker for the forum. The Algerian MP Abdul Magid Al Manasera was elected a speaker for the forum, and Dr. Nasser Al Sana from Kuwait, a second deputy speaker.
The Egyptian ambassador to Indonesia received the MB bloc’s delegation in his residence in Jakarta, which also received a warm welcome from ambassadors of Arab countries to Indonesia who greatly appreciated the Muslim Brotherhood MPs of the Egyptian parliament.
The IFIP is considered a nucleus for an Islamic States Parliament like the Arab parliament, the European Parliament and the African parliament. Several international organizations and bodies participated in the conference as observers.
