The high commission of the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP), the Muslim Brotherhood's political wing, will hold a meeting Thursday to choose a new secretary general and several committee secretaries.

Saad El-Katatni, head of the FJP, announced Wednesday on his Facebook page that the party's high commission would discuss electoral alliances for the upcoming parliamentary elections, expected to take place in April.

The commission will also approve a legislative agenda for the party to be adopted in parliament's upper house, the Shura Council, which has legislative powers until a new House of Representatives (formerly People's Assembly) is elected.

Meanwhile, the Brotherhood's own Shura Council will hold a meeting Friday and Saturday, Mahmoud Ghozlan, the Brotherhood's spokesperson, told Al-Ahram Arabic news website Thursday.

Ghozlan said that all members of the Brotherhood's Shura Council in Cairo and the Egyptian governorates will attend the meeting, which the Brotherhood's Supreme Guide Mohamed Badie called for.

Mahmoud Hussein, the Brotherhood's secretary general, said that the council will choose a new member to replace Mohamed Ali Beshr who was appointed in September as Monofiya's governor and became minister for local development last week.

The council will also discuss the results of the referendum on the constitution that in December returned 63.8 per cent majority in favour of the constitution written by the Islamist-dominated Constituent Assembly.  

In addition, the council will set preparations for parliamentary elections and discuss "celebrating the anniversary of January 25 Revolution."

Meanwhile, several opposition forces, such as the 6th of April Movement and the National Association for Change, have announced they will protest President Mohamed Morsi's strategies and press for changes on the revolution anniversary.

It is expected that the Muslim Brotherhood will release a press statement Saturday detailing the outcomes of the meeting.

Failure of FJP
The party is to blame for this economic crisis that will hurt everyone. Tell people the truth instead of more lies and empty meetings. Allah AKber Ya Mofsideen fi El-Ard.
