Secretary-General of the ruling National Democratic Party (NDP) Safwat el-Sherif on Monday said his party would finalize its electoral platform in August before presenting it to President Hosni Mubarak.
“The final platform will be announced in October,” el-Sherif said.
“The platform will be based on the results of our nationwide opinion survey and on numerous rallies,” he explained, adding that the NDP was keen on improving its representatives’ performance in terms of meeting the demands of the public.
“We will make sure that all our activities are in conformity with the constitution and that there are no violations by anyone,” he said.
El-Sherif went on to describe opposition parties that intend to boycott parliamentary elections as “weak,” saying, “We believe in political pluralism.”
