The liberal Egyptian Bloc officially launched its parliamentary electoral campaign Tuesday evening at the 5-star Shepherd Hotel in downtown Cairo.

The Bloc is comprised of three political parties: the liberal Free Egyptians, the Egyptian Social Democratic Party and the leftist Tagammu Party.

The Bloc has agreed on a unified campaign slogan: "Together, we will achieve what is ours".

Refaat El-Said, head of the Tagammu Party, used his remarks in the event to accuse the Muslim Brotherhood of conspiring to monopolise political power.

Hani Seri El-Din, the head of the Free Egyptians Party, stressed that the three-party alliance is only a first step in a long term strategic alliance between the country's liberal forces that aims to fight for a democratic country based on full equality between all citizens and a socially-oriented market system.

The parliamentary elections kick off on 28 November.

Is the new Democratic Egypt going to be governed by majority of ignorant
Is the new Democratic Egypt going to be governed by majority of ignorant and illiterate poor people how nothing about politics? Enough is enough to those who pretend to be Islamist and use their religious beliefs and money to brain wash these people. I was saddened when I saw 2 groups of Egyptians both voted for for Islamist parties because they received sugar, meat and money. We all know as Egyptians that the majority of our people lack education and political knowledge. And any religion parties abusing this fact to get voted. If religion is used or mixed with politics then we going back to square 1.
