"These are real elections, and unlike other elections elsewhere, the results are not known in advance”, said Dr. Hamdy Hassan, the Bloc current spokesman in an exclusive statement to Ikhwanweb, adding that the election was not held in the first term of session as most of the MPs joined the Parliament for the first time and needed to gain sufficient experiences before they can participate in the elections.
First MB Deputy Chairman Dr. Mohamed Habib said that the idea to hold primaries within the Bloc was first suggested by the MB Executive Bureau’s in an effort to help the Ikhwan MPs practice real democracy within their bloc so that they learn to choose the right member for the right place”
