At a news conference with a delegation of the Moroccan Justice and Development Party Tuesday, Dr. Essam El-Erian, Vice-Chairman of the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP), affirmed that there are challenges facing the Egyptians at the moment.
"We have a strong economic challenge, as well as a strong challenge in building State institutions. We are confident in the ability of the Egyptian street to overcome the current obstacles. The situation is generally moving towards political stability, especially after the adoption of the Constitution and the completion of the upcoming parliamentary elections."
"Already, the Shura Council (the upper, consultative house of Egypt’s parliament) is a positive partner in the legislative branch, and has several very important laws to debate and pass, including the new election law, which will yield a vital new parliamentary and political reality. Everyone is certain there will be several new political forces."
