Despite calls for boycotting elections by former IAEA Chairman Dr. Mohamed ElBaradei, and unjustified arbitrary arrests the Muslim Brotherhood has confirmed it will contest 30% of the 508 seats free for elections.  Since the group chairman’s Dr. Mohamed Badie’s confirmation on October 9, and the announcing of nominees names in  various constituencies security apparatus has up-scaled its aggression and oppression against the MB detaining over 150 members. Over 88 establishments and businesses owned by MB members have also been closed down.
