The "Democratic Alliance for Egypt" (DAE) is boosting its Elections Coordination Committee – which deals with all the parties involved in DAE and selects candidates for the upcoming parliamentary elections. The Committee will now include Dr. Mohamed Beltagy (member of the Executive Office of the "Freedom and Justice" party), Dr. Wahid Abdel Meguid (deputy director of the Centre for Political and Strategic Studies of Al-Ahram), Dr. Ayman Nour (leader of the al-Ghad al-Jadid or “New Tomorrow” party) and Saad Abboud (vice chairman of the Karama or "Dignity" party).
The Committee has already met with the parties Freedom and Justice, Karama, al-Ghad al-Jadid, Nasseri, al-‘Amal, Hadara, Asala, Eslah & Nahda, and al-Binaa & Tanmeia. In the next few days, the Committee will meet the rest of the DAE parties and review the names of their candidates.
In a statement to IkhwanWeb, Dr. Mohamed Beltagy stressed that the final form of the DAE and its participants will be decided through the lists of candidates to be approved by the Committee which will assess all by criteria the most important of which are: an honourable national record before the revolution, public credibility, experience in political and parliamentary work, and specialisation and efficiency in relation to one of the specific committees of the parliament.
