The Muslim Brotherhood youth party will flout the requisite adherence to the Freedom and Justice Party


El-Tayar El-Masri (Egyptian Current) is the name of a new party being established by the youths of the Muslim Brotherhood. The party's formation is in defiance of a previous MB stipulation that its members may only join El-Horreya We El-Adala (the Freedom and Justice Party).

The MB, who had recently founded El-Horreya We El-Adala to become politically involved, stressed that any member who joins another party will be expelled immediately.

Leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood youths, Islam Lotfi, Mohamed El-Kasaas and Mohamed Abbas are among the founding member of El-Tayar El-Masri.

The trio are also part of the Revolution Youth Coalition. They have also refused in the past to follow the MB’s order to withdraw from the Coalition.

El-Tayar El-Masri is being introduced as a democratic party with an Islamic frame of reference that favours secularism in government.
