According to a statement published on El Adl party’s official Facebook page, its founding members submitted an official request to the Supreme Council for Armed Forces (SCAF) to exempt the party and all other new parties from publishing the names of 5000 founding members in two major newspapers.

El Adl stated that the request would be extremely expensive for a newly-founded party, and that it would be better to spend the money on establishing party bases across the country.

Based on El Adl’s statement, the SCAF has approved the request and decided not only to exempt El Adl but all new parties as well in order to encourage new parties to participate in the political arena.

According to the new parties law, each new party should publish the name of 5000 founding members in two popular newspapers.

There has been a lot criticism of this article, which was considered an obstacle for new parties with limited resources.
