The Islamist Al-Wasat Party, one of the most prominent members of the Muslim Brotherhood-led National Alliance in Support of Legitimacy, withdrew from the coalition on Thursday, citing the need to be part of a wider alliance.
The party intends to establish a wide umbrella that is to be more inclusive, stating that the general revolutionary movement for change following the 2011 uprising transcends any front or alliances, the party said in a statement.
Al-Wasat's top leadership is in jail, charged with crimes related to alleged violent acts of the Muslim Brotherhood after the ouster of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in July 2013.
