Dr Esam El-Erian, member of the Brotherhood's Guidance Bureau and its media spokesman, has warned that if politicians urge people to vote "no" in the constitutional amendments it would drag citizens toward the unknown, indicating that those who call people to vote "no" have no alternative plans.

"Fears raised about the proposed constitutional amendments promoted by rejectionists is unjustified and just media hype," El -Erian said, adding that voting" yes" gives Egypt many privileges, most importantly, it will create a free climate aiming to conduct fair and transparent elections and draft a new constitution following the formation of an elected constituent assembly by the parliament, challenging attempts to counter the revolution's gains and enable the army to devote itself to its primary mission, namely to protect national security.

He also called on the Egyptian people to stand next to the police and army to protect the ballot boxes during the referendum, adding that using the Muslim Brotherhood as a scarecrow is the same style that was used under Mubarak's regime. He also asserted that the Brothers are too wise to lead the task of governing Egypt before they have strong popular support, based on a clear and unambiguous platform.

The Truth Khaled
Ikhwan are very keen to push people for yes> Most of them said yes because they want stabilty .. or they think so.Do not get the illusion that a Yes vote means you win cause you will not. Most of us know for sure that you have no ethics and you use all means specially religion to fool simple people.I do not understand your insitance on playing politics and what is the real benefit for the country of having you in the parlimant.Do not think that we will let you destroy Egypt and bring ethnicity to the country... we will fight back your ideology cause as muslim I know that you are far away from true Islam. Please go back to the mosques and let the Egyptian live in peace and unity
