Former MPs from all walks and trends in Egypt disregarded ideological differences and have united and vowed to stage a protest on Sunday and a sit-in on Monday, which has been slated the first day of activity for the ‘newly elected’ parliamentary session.

Close to 90 former MPs announced their plans to form a shadow parliament despite regime supporters threatening to dissolve the body through legal channels. A meeting held at the Democratic Front Party headquarters on Saturday, was attended by Muslim Brotherhood and Wafd Party members, and a number of independents, who called on President Mubarak to enforce court rulings to abolish the elections and dissolve what they described as an invalid parliament.

Security forces tried to contain the demonstration where hundreds of protestors rallied to voice their discontent in front of the Supreme Judicial Council earlier today. The opposition forces have also announced their intentions to engage in a sit-in on Monday before the State Council.

A number of former MB parliamentary bloc representatives held a conference on Saturday highlighting the importance of the public demonstrations.

During the oppositions’ meeting, the MB chairman, Dr. Mohamed Badie, maintained that electoral transgressions have effectively "banned" the ruling National Democratic Party (NDP), accusing the NDP of a host of violations, including fraud and voter intimidation.

Close to three hundred complaints have been submitted to the parliament’s secretariat challenging the first round of the elections held on November 28. In turn, the parliamentary speaker is legally obligated to refer such complaints to the court.
