Representatives of the National Salvation Front in the Shura Council have formed a committee to unify their position on draft laws submitted to Parliament.
Ihab al-Kharrat of the Egyptian Social Democratic Party said there are 45 representatives in the committee, including members of the Free Egyptians Party, the Karama Party, the Wafd Party, the Democratic Generation Party, the Egyptian Current Party, the Social Peace Party and the Freedom Party.
The front decided that all committee members must sit next to each other during council sessions in order to demonstrate their power, said Mohamed al-Hanafy of the Wafd Party.
“We will ask deputies of other civil forces to sit among us to show more strength,” he said.
