The Strong Egypt Party on Wednesday denied applying to join the oppositionist National Salvation Front, affirming that its declared reasons for not joining the front did not change.
In a statement reported by the Middle East News Agency (MENA), the party which was founded by former presidential candidate Abdel Moneim Aboul Fotouh denied reaching an agreement to join an electoral alliance.
The party said it had "direct connections to figures like Mohamed ElBaradei, Hamdeen Sabahi, Mohamed Ghonim, and Abdel Ghaffar Shokr".
The party also ruled out the possibility of creating an alliance with the Freedom and Justice Party, the Muslim Brotherhood's political arm.
"Electoral alliances with those in power have politically complicated calculations," the party said.
