Egypt PM Beblawi only meets non-Islamist parties: Salafist Nour Party

Ahram Online, Sunday 4 Aug 2013

Sherif Taha, spokesman of the Salafist El-Nour Party, charges that Egypt's interim premier is contributing to national polarisation in only meeting with non-Islamists

Salafist El-Nour Party spokesperson Sherif Taha said in a statement Sunday that Interim Prime Minister Hazem El-Beblawi has not sent an invitation for dialogue to Islamist parties and has met only non-Islamist parties, condemning this as an “increase to the already existing polarisation."

Taha further crtiticised claims that a separate meeting will be held with Islamists, adding that this "divides the country further" and that the premier should have sent invitations to all parties at once.

“We also condemn [the] lack of transparency, as the meeting with non-Islamist parties was not publicised,” Taha said, confirming that until now El-Nour Party has not been invited to this meeting.  

According to media reports, El-Beblawi, who is also a founding member of the Egyptian Social Democratic Party, met with several members of National Salvation Front parties late Saturday.
