Former deputy supreme guide of the Muslim Brotherhood Mohamed Habib has resigned and joined the newly formed El-Nahda Party, According to media reports.

Presidential hopeful Abd El-Monem Abou El-Fotouh is head of El-Nahda Party. Abou El-Fotouh, a former Muslim Brotherhood Guidance Bureau member, was recently expelled from the ‎controversial Islamist group for embarking on a presidential campaign despite the group's stated committment not to field candidates and forbidding its members from running independently.

The Muslim Brotherhood seems to be experiencing divisions post-revolution. At least four groups within the organization are seeking to form their own party, including El-Nahda, in addition to the already registered Freedom and Justice party. However, none of the four other parties have as yet been registered.
