Former NDP secretary general seeks to establish political party

Hossam Badrawy, former secretary general of the dissolved National Democratic Party (NDP), has filed an application to form a new political party called Al-Itihad (meaning The Union).

The prospective party's literature states that it will support the principles of a civil and democratic state, a gradual transition of power based on free elections, an independent judiciary, freedom of expression and the rights of equality among citizens.

The party's founders say it also aims to encourage young people to participate in politics.
