The Constitution Party and the Adl Party, led respectively by Mohamed ElBaradei and Emad Sayed Ahmed, agreed to merge on Thursday.
“The Adl Party and the Constitution Party will work together for freedom and social justice in Egypt,” ElBaradei wrote on Twitter.
The two parties share the same vision, Ahmed said.
The Constitution Party was formally recognized by the Egyptian authorities in mid-September. The party was co-founded by ElBaradei, the former director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency and a Nobel Prize laureate.
Hesham Akram, a member of the Adl Party's coordinating committee, told Al-Masry Al-Youm in May that the party had agreed with the Egyptian Social Democratic Party and the Free Egyptians Party to create a united front prior to the formation of the Constitution Party, with the goal of merging with it as soon as it was established.
