The international wing of the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) movement has urged its Egyptian counterparts to withdraw from next weeks' parliamentary elections due to an ongoing crackdown on the group's parliamentary candidates by Egyptian security forces.
“I advise them to withdraw from the contest,” said MB representative in Europe Ibrahim Mounir, who stressed that his opinion was merely a recommendation.
Mounir went on to predict that Egypt's parliament would be dissolved next year on grounds of "unconstitutional" election procedures.
“So there's little point in fielding candidates,” he said.
