Dostour: ElBaradei no longer connected with party

Bassant Fahmy, vice president of Dostour Party, told Egypt Independent that former Vice President Mohamed ElBaradei is no longer connected with the party following his resignation and departure from Egypt.

Fahmy added that ElBaradei's position should be respected, particularly since he was opposed to the forcible dispersal of the sit-ins staged by supporters of ousted President Mohamed Morsy in Rabaa al-Adawyea and Giza's al-Nahda Square.

The Dostour leader called on the media to stop insulting ElBaradei, describing him as an icon of the Egyptian revolution that overthrew Hosni Mubarak at the height of his power.

ElBaradei also criticised Morsy right up until his removal from power, Fahmy claimed.
