Wafd, Ghad, Front parties to form unified candidacy list

Informed sources claim the Wafd, Ghad and Democratic Front parties are forming a new coalition, and aim to run in the upcoming parliamentary elections with a unified candidacy list and a platform that reflects their liberal thoughts.

“We are also in contact with the Nasserist and leftist parties to try and win the highest number of seats,” said Democratic Front Party representative Ibrahim Nawar, adding that this coalition would be dissolved after the elections.

For his part, Wafd Party representative Ramy Lakah said the three parties agreed on a political and economic reform program for a secular state.

He also said he may collaborate with the Muslim Brotherhood, it being a liberal group with an Islamic reference, as he put it.
