Egypt: Mursi Says Parliamentary Elections Will Be Transparent - Spokesman

Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi reaffirmed that the upcoming parliamentary elections will be transparent at Monday's "national dialogue" meeting, said his spokesman.

Presidential spokesman Yasser Ali also told a press conference on Tuesday that the president is committed to present the proposed amendments to the parliamentary elections law to the future people's assembly.

Meanwhile, presidential political advisor, Pakinam al-Sharqawy, said that the national dialogue has dismissed suggestions to form a national unity government due to the near date of the parliamentary elections.
