The “National Coalition for Egypt” was launched yesterday following numerous meetings held earlier last week between political factions.

Al-Ahram writes that the coalition was created with the aim of establishing a parliamentary representation of all political forces in society and the creation of a national unity government.

Political party members include the Muslim Brotherhood’s newly-approved Freedom and Justice Party, the Wafd Party, El-Ghad, El-Adl, El-Tagammu, El-Nasserist, El-Amal, El-Wasat, El-Nour, El-Karama, El-Tawheed El-Araby and Masr El-Horreya   Parties.

During a press conference, the coalition stated that the parties decided to join together in order to help ease the country into a democracy that will implement the values of the January 25 Revolution; freedom, justice, democracy and equal citizenship. The parties have agreed on the establishment of a civil state with equal citizenship where the rule of law will prevail. Political forces in the country will be mobilized to achieve democracy, economic prosperity and national development for Egypt, beginning with the formation of a new parliament and Shura council and the drafting of a new constitution.

The coalition has agreed to form a committee to work on creating a new unified law for the parliamentary elections, another to coordinate the upcoming elections slated for September and a third to create a manifesto that will include the guidelines to be followed by coalition members. A permanent treasury will also be set up for the coalition.

According to MB chairman, Dr. Mohamed Badie, national unity is vital for the stability of Egypt in the coming period.
