Egypt: Opposition Group Calls for Boycotting Elections

Egypt's National Association for Change on Friday called for boycotting the imminent parliamentary elections that will begin on 27 April.

The association calls for boycotting the elections in response to the regime's refusal to respond to the demands of the National Salvation Front and the initiative of the Salafi Nour Party, a statement for the association said.

The association considers participation in the election in any form an abandonment of the revolution's principles and the rights of its victims.

The association also urged the Salvation Front to stick to its conditions for contesting the elections to avoid losing its credibility.

Contesting the elections with the Muslim Brotherhood's conditions is a political suicide and a "dangerous trap that will make way for forging the will of the people", the association said.
