Muslim Brotherhood candidates have met with much controversy for their continued use of their renowned motto "Islam is the Solution,". They argue that the Brotherhood's slogan is legal and conforms to Article 2 of the Constitution


MB leader Abdallah el-Bahrawi, from the Journalists Syndicate maintained that all candidates, used religious mottos including those from the ruling National Democratic Party referring to verses from the Holy Quran which are cited during their campaigns. El-Bahrawi added "Several court rulings confirmed that the Brotherhood's slogan conforms to the Constitution".

However, Gehad Ouda, of the NDP's influential Policies Committee, alleged that the Brotherhood's slogan was unconstitutional, claiming that such decision should be made by the Supreme Constitutional Court and not the lower courts.
