Cairo — Egypt's administrative court dissolved, on Saturday, the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP), the Muslim Brotherhood's political wing, the state news agency reported.
The decision against the FJP comes after a recommendation by the court's advisory panel that noted the party's leaders had already been accused and convicted of murder and inciting violence.
The ruling will prevent the banned Islamist movement from participating in the parliamentary elections to be held later this year.
The Egyptian government declared the Brotherhood a terrorist group in December.
The party was founded in 2011 by the Brotherhood after President Hosni Mubarak was deposed in a popular uprising.
