The petition has successfully acquired over 700,525 signatures on the MB website and 111,100 on the NAC website nearing its target of 1 million.
The petitioners called on all Egyptians to participate eagerly and enthusiastically in this campaign, in order to eliminate corruption, prevent fraud, stop torture, and preserve the dignity of the Egyptian citizen internally and externally, through putting an end to the state of emergency.
The seven points of the charter backed by the Brotherhood include:

Badie ascertained that the MB supports the principles ElBaradei adopts and calls for. "These are not the demands of Dr. Mohammed ElBaradei only, but they are demands that gained the consensus of all active political actors in the society," he continued " "These are not the demands of Dr. Mohammed ElBaradei only, but they are demands that gained the consensus of all active political actors in the society," he added.
