Mursy: Government does not Want Powerful Parties
Muhammad Mursy, a member of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Guidance Office, asserted that the Egyptian regime is the operative force behind the weakness of political parties. Parties are confirmed to laws that curtail its action; no party can arrange a protest, a conference, a march, or a symposium without having a permission of the security bodies that usually refuse.

Muhammad Mursy, a member of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Guidance Office, asserted that the Egyptian regime is the operative force behind the weakness of political parties. Parties are confirmed to laws that curtail its action; no party can arrange a protest, a conference, a march, or a symposium without having a permission of the security bodies that usually refuse.    
 
In an interview with Al-Alam Channel, in which Dia’ Dawood, the leader of Nasserian Party and Waheed Abdul Mageed, the Vice President of Al-Ahram Center for Strategic Studies, Mursy put the blame for parties poor showing in the parliamentary polls on the government along with the Party Committee that eliminate the spirit of competition among parties.  
 
Surprised by the claim that the Muslim Brotherhood has availed from its outlawed status, Mursy explained that the group is tied up. For example, thousands of its members have been detained and martial-courted over the last decade.
 
Committing on the parliamentary vote, Mursy proclaimed that Muslim Brotherhood achieved its major wins due to voters’ will. He added, however, the government mobilized its tactics to weaken the MB’s showing. It forced monitoring judges to commit frauds and used violence to disperse voters. Nevertheless, these schemes were successful in some cases, but failed in others.
 
On his party, Dawood affirmed that the regime does not approve party policy; in stead it adopts the autocratic rule. However, the last vote showed that political action can be done without government support for democracy.
 
In the same connection, Abdul Mageed remarked the National Democratic Party is the only ruling party that exercises control over the country over long tome. In addition, the inner structure of the Egyptian parties does not provide tools to defy this ruling party that is on the verge of collapse. Meanwhile, some parties such as el-Wafd and al-Tagmoa do not make use of governmental support to them. While the Muslim Brotherhood is able to promote internal collective action, other parties fail.
