Abul-Fotouh condemns Morsi 'failures', demands early presidential elections

Abul-Fotouh condemns Morsi 'failures', demands early presidential elections | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Abul-Fotouh, a former presidential candidate, was speaking at a press conference in the Nile Delta governorate of Gharbiya on Sunday.

 

“President Morsi thought he could rule the country through his group [the Muslim Brotherhood]. But this is not right, the president can’t rule successfully unless he is surrounded by the people,” he added.

 

Abul-Fotouh said the Muslim Brotherhood should withdraw from politics and focus on religious preaching.

 

“The people are paying the price for the mixing of religion and politics,” he said.

 

Abul-Fotouh was a member of the Brotherhood's Guidance Bureau from 1987 until 2009. He left the group after the January 25 Revolution when he defied the group's official policy by declaring he would stand in presidential elections.

 

Abul-Fotouh was an early frontrunner in the presidential race but eventually finished fourth.

 

He formed the Strong Egypt Party in October 2012.

 

Abul-Fotouh made similar comments about the need for early presidential elections when he was in Doha earlier this month.

Ex-MP asks for early presidential elections to end crisis

Ex-MP asks for early presidential elections to end crisis | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it
Egypt-actus's insight:

Former member of the now-dissolved People's Assembly, Mostafa al-Naggar, has called for early presidential elections as an exit to save the country from the current political crisis. 

He pointed out that he has decided to retract his initial stance on an earlier election due to the administration's failure and in fear of the fragmentation of the state.  

Naggar explained on Twitter on Sunday that what people viewed as unlikely in the past is becoming more and more likely with time as the failures and poor performance of the presidency continue.

He called on political forces to nominate a brand new presidential candidate who did not run in the previous elections that brought Mohamed Mursi to power.

He stressed that while he respects elections and does not intend to disregard legitimacy, it is a contract between the two parties and if one of them fails to deliver, the other one has the right to react.
