It includes liberal and leftist members, as well as former Muslim Brotherhood members who were dismissed after the joining the party. The Brotherhood does not allow its members to join political parties other than its Freedom and Justice Party.
“We consider Morsy’s decisions to send Tantawi and Anan to retirement an end to the political role of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces, a recovery of civil power, and a restoration of the powers of the legitimate authority elected by the people, which is one of the main demands of the glorious January revolution,” the party said in a statement Monday.
