The Egyptian Minister for Insurance and Social Affairs, Nagwa Khalil, said on Thursday that the ministry received a request to officially register a group by the name of "Muslim Brotherhood" on Tuesday.
The minister added that the group was officially registered under the number "644" of the year 2013, according with Article "51" of the new constitution, after meeting all the required conditions and submitting necessary documents.
Khalil insisted that the ministry will observe the activities and budget of this non-governmental organization, as a civil society entity, starting on its official declaration date, according with Law "84" of 2002, until the ratification of the new law.
Commenting on legal reports that were filed against the NGO to the Administrative Court, Khalil explained that she cannot interfere in the work of the judiciary, but is willing to provide the court with information and documents if it asked.
State commissioners of Egypt's Administrative Court had recommended the dissolution of the Muslim Brotherhood for lacking legal basis.
State commissioners' recommendations are not binding on the court who will hear the appeals of dissolving the Muslim Brotherhood on March 26.
Brotherhood lawyer, Abdel Moneim Abdel Maksoud, told Reuters on Wednesday that the MB has been officially registered under the number "644" of the year 2013, but did not mention the date where the registration took place.
