Muslim Brotherhood: Christians and Women Unsuitable for Presidency

ICC Note:

“Political parties have the right to nominate women or Copts for the presidency, but we find it unsuitable. Perhaps they should be nominated only for ministerial positions,” Al-Masry Al-Youm reported Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohsen Radi as saying.

2/20/2011 Egypt (Al-Masry Al-Youm) – “Political parties have the right to nominate women or Copts for the presidency,” said Muslim Brotherhood leading figure 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.
