Prominent MB member, and a leading figure in its parliamentary bloc, attorney Sobhi Saleh stressed during a symposium on Saturday that the MB is planning on participating in the November’s parliamentary elections despite the lack of clear government guarantees that it would be held in a free and transparent atmosphere.

 
Saleh argued that MB participation in the elections is necessary to expose the vote-rigging before the Egyptian public and world.
 
Saleh warned that if the upcoming elections is rigged; the legitimacy of Egypt's next president--who must be sworn in before the national assembly--could be undermined.  
 
According to the 2007 constitutional amendment, presidential candidates must obtain the endorsement of at least 250 parliamentarians and municipal council members in order to run for elections
