Egyptians are preparing for the upcoming presidential elections, however many questions surround this process during the current interim government. One matter still unsolved is if the Muslim Brotherhood will push for the trial of the members from the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces lead by the minister of defense, Mohammed Hussein Tantawi.
The Muslim Brotherhood is concerned by the way the interim government made the transition period. Azza al Garf, deputy of the Political Party of Freedom and Justice, stated “we will hear the demands of the people, but there are laws and authorities responsible for conducting such process if it is decided that way.”
Last Thursday during a press conference, General Mohammed al-Assar assured that the military board will give the power in June 30 and that observers from 45 countries have been invited witness such event. This could lead to the first transparent presidential elections to set a chief of State.
However Egypt is facing again a wave of riots and protests as citizens complain about the way the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces is leading the country. Hundreds of people have been injured and some fatalities have been reported. (AV)
