The Strong Egypt Party supports a policy of "peaceful change" through its participation in anti-government protests on 30 June, and stands against calls for a "military coup" as an alternative to President Mohamed Morsi's rule.
"We are afraid that Egypt's army will slip into political dilemmas, or that a civil war could break out between those competing for power," the party said in an official statement released on Monday detailing its reasons for participation in the mass protests planned for 30 June to oppose Morsi and call for early presidential elections.
Strong Egypt, led by former Islamist presidential contender Abdel-Moneim Abul-Fotouh, said that the current political strife in the country is the direct responsibility of Morsi and the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP), who "diverted long ago from the aims of the 25 January revolution."
"Instead, they focus on fulfilling their own goals, which do not coincide with the revolution's aims," the statement read.
It attributed the country's current "political strife" to increasing "exclusion and accusations of treason and heresy."
