MB MP: Ruling regime is behind restricted campaigning schedule

MB MP: Ruling regime is behind restricted campaigning schedule

 

 Spokesman and head of the Muslim Brotherhood Parliamentary bloc, Dr. Mohamed Saad Ketatni denounced the tight schedule drafted for the parliamentary elections slated for November 28, 2010.

Councilor Abdel Aziz Omar, head of the Cairo Court of Appeal and the supreme elections committee issued the dates and schedules of the elections in November 28 to all candidates.

Ketatni told Ikhwanweb that the dates set were inappropriate, insufficient and unjust stressing that they were established to disrupt the opposition, especially the Muslim Brotherhood who secured 88 seats in the parliamentary election in 2005 despite the fraud which prevailed in the second and third rounds.

He stressed that there wasn’t enough time for candidates especially in the larger constituencies to make their rounds during campaigning.
