Mohamed ElBaradei’s Constitution Party officially registered as a political party on Wednesday when party members presented 10,700 documents to the Political Party Affairs Committee at the High Court.

Egyptian law requires a political party to collect at least 5,000 notarisation documents before it is officially registered.

Excited members wore t-shirts with the words “Constitution,” scrawled on them and waved banners saying “The Constitution Party is for all Egyptians.”

Prominent members of the party were also present at the High Court, including Emad Abu Ghazi, former Minister of Culture, Gameela Ismael, former member of the Ghad Party, George Ishaq, activist and founder of the pro-change Kefaya movement, and Shady Ghazali Harb and Nasser Abdel Hameed, members of the Revolution Youth Alliance.

The Constitution Party was launched by liberal activists in April 2012 and aims to unite Egyptian regardless of their ideology.

ElBaradei, a well-known reform campaigner, was a former presidential hopeful but withdrew from the race in January to protest the decision to elect a president before drafting a new constitution.

To Mohamed ElBaradei
Mr. Mohamed ElBaradei, I thought you are inteligent enough to know that America and its cohorts EU, and entire West is against Muslims, as you experienced in your tenure of the IAEA chief. You must work with MB and put your hand of support forward. Making your own mosque is not good for the nation.
