Cairo – Akram Ali
A number of revolutionary and popular movements have launched a campaign called Egypt the Nation (Misr el-Watan), in order to unify the civil power efforts in the coming parliamentary elections against controlling
the Islamic faction.
The front held its first constituent meeting on Wednesday, at the Leadership Development Centre. Amongst those who attended was the journalist Fatema Naput, the consulting engineer Mamdouh Hamza and 17 collation and popular movements.
In its first statement, the campaign said: “The recent governmental policies are not greatly different from Mobarak’s regime policies.”
The statement added that: “The aim from founding this front is to unify the efforts of civil power, trying to form a solid mass base that involves political and national work in an organised manner.”
In the same context, the organisers of the participating movement said that the most important achievement for the Muslim Brotherhood is that they pushed civil power in the union pass. This was to challenge Islamists controlling institutions, pointing that the front will do its most efforts to defend the independent Egyptian identity without being affected by any political party.
The leftist power has invited socialist and leftist movements to urgently unify in order to tackle the Muslim Brotherhoods who are currently ruling the nation.
