Tagammu Party withdraws from Democratic Coalition

The Tagammu Party on Sunday withdrew from the Democratic Coalition including 28 political parties, on the grounds that the coalition did not denounce Islamic groups for their demonstration of 29 July.

“The coalition should have demanded an apology from the religious party for what they did during the demonstration,” said Tagammu Vice President Samir Fayyad, adding that his party would form another coalition of 22 parties.

The Democratic Coalition met on Sunday to discuss what measures it would take following the unheeded ultimatum it had given the military council to revise the electoral system so as to make it a list-based system.

Deputy Prime Minister al-Selmy, who attended the meeting, confirmed that the government would work with all political parties to agree on general principles for the new constitution.
