Egypt's opposition Muslim Brotherhood says it will shift its political struggle to the streets after elections were "rigged" to ensure the movement was ejected from parliament.

Brotherhood leader Mohamed Badie said the group would use peaceful means of dissent against a parliament that did not reflect the strength of Egypt's opposition or the will of voters.

President Hosni Mubarak's National Democratic Party won 420 of the 508 seats in the elections on 28 November and 5 December. The Brotherhood held 86 seats in the previous parliament.
