Mukhtar Ashri, Chairman of the Legal Committee of the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP), expressed concern for the postponement of the presidential elections announcement to Saturday or Sunday, instead of Thursday.
In a statement to Ikhwanweb, Ashri said: "This dubious maneuver is totally unacceptable, especially since the consideration of appeals and complaints from Dr. Mohamed Morsi and his rival does not take all this time".
He added: "At the latest, results must be announced on Friday. But certain interested parties want to cause even more anxiety among the people and further confuse the political scene".
Ashri stressed that Dr. Mohamed Morsi’s campaign remains confident of Morsi’s victory, since his rival’s complaints are so insignificant they will not affect the result.
