Salafis and Brotherhood to coordinate efforts in parliamentary elections

Khaled Saeed, founder of the new Fadila (meaning virtue) Party, which was founded recently by a group of Salafis, says he has agreed with the Muslim Brotherhood group that neither party will field candidates in areas where the other is fielding candidates during the next parliamentary elections.

“We shall meet in a few days to determine how many parliamentary seats each party will compete for,” he said. “We do not want to antagonize any political party that is based on a religious reference.”

Saeed also said the platform of the Fadila Party is currently being devised by a number of legal experts.
