Dr. Mohamed Yousry, spokesman for "The Islamic Legitimate Body of Rights and Reformation" (ILBRR), has officially announced support for Dr. Mohamed Morsi, the presidential candidate of the Muslim Brotherhood and the Freedom and Justice Party in the forthcoming elections set for May 2012.
In a press conference, Wednesday evening, Sheikh Yousry added that the ILBRR endorsed Dr. Morsi after a referendum among the members of the General Assembly, in which Dr. Morsi received two-thirds of the vote. This followed a series of meetings and dialogue with presidential candidates to learn about their electoral platforms.
