Muslim Brotherhood member: Copts and women ‘unsuitable for presidency’

“Political parties have the right to nominate women or Copts for the presidency,” said Muslim Brotherhood member Mohsen Radi. “But we find it unsuitable. Perhaps they should be nominated only for ministerial positions.”

Radi also said the group would not play any role in the caretaker government. “The government went down with the fall of the previous president,” he said.

The group had welcomed the establishment of the moderate Al-Wasat Party and expressed its willingness to cooperate with its leaders, adding that it would file for establishing its own party once the relevant law has been amended.

In related news, Mohamed Anwar al-Sadat, founder of the Reform and Development Party, said the new trend now is to give a chance to all parties that were rejected by the Party Affairs Commission of the previous government.
