Day one of campaigning for the parliamentary elections revealed the real intentions of Egypt's ruling regime as Muslim Brotherhood candidates' supporters nationwide were exposed to arbitrary arrests and unjustified assaults.

In Beni Suef alone, 53 supporters were abducted by security forces and 31 MB members were arrested in Monoufeya.

In Fayoum, a high school student was among the 7 detained MB members in the governorate.
MB candidate, Mahmoud Attia, was injured during assaults ordered by security forces while the Shubra al Kheima district witnessed 12 MB arrests. Sixteen more members of the MB were taken into police headquarters in the Cairo districts of Imbaba, Warak, Hadaek Al-Quba and Khanka, including one child.


Other unjust arrests took place in Tanta where 2 member of the MB were brought in by police officials.


Campaigning, which has officially begun in the country, has witnessed the vigorous enforcement of the Emergency Law with these arbitrary arrests. Moreover, the lack of democracy - limiting the freedom of MB candidates campaigning - by the arrests and closure of electoral headquarters ordered by the Interior Ministry's security apparatus, expose the regime's inability to conform to promises made to conduct transparent elections.
