Egyptian youth to form new political party
Cairo: A group of young people in Egypt who had taken part in the anti-government protests that led to the ouster of president Hosni Mubarak, has announced that they are forming a new political party.
The group will seek to bring the protesters` demands to reality by political activity, Hamdi Baha el-Din, one of the group`s founders, told Egyptian news agency MENA.
The members will follow legal procedures to start the party after the March 19 referendum on constitutional amendments, Xinhua reported.
Cairo`s High Administrative Court approved on February 19 the first Egyptian party with an Islamic background - Al Wasat - which had been seeking a licence since 15 years.
Egypt`s largest political opposition, the Muslim Brotherhood, is also preparing to establish a political party named Freedom and Justice Party, according to a statement on its website.
Mubarak stepped down on February 11 after 18 days of anti-government protests and moved to the resort city of Sharm el-Sheikh.
