Opposition to boycott Egyptian elections
Tuesday 26 February 2013
The main opposition coalition has announced that it will boycott upcoming parliamentary elections – a decision likely to deepen the nation’s political crisis.
The announcement by the liberal and secular National Salvation Front (NSF) came hours ahead of the start of a “national dialogue” called for by President Mohamed Morsi to find ways to ensure the “transparency” and “integrity” of the vote. A leading NSF member, Sameh Ashour, said the front was also boycotting the dialogue.
Called by President Morsi last weekend, the elections will start in April and be staggered over a two-month period.
