Head of the International Union of Muslim Scholars Yusuf al-Qaradawi told the German DPA news agency on Monday that he hoped Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood (MB) opposition group would boycott Sunday's parliamentary elections.
“It is obvious that the opposition will receive only scraps from the Egyptian regime,” he said in reference to the elections, suggesting that the MB may have only opted to participate in the races in order to drum up popular support.
“Otherwise, the regime would ban them from talking to the public,” added al-Qaradawi, who went on to urge all Egyptians to participate in the polls.
