Egypt's Liberal Party to Boycott Elections

The founder of the liberal Free Egyptians Party, Naguib Sawiris, said on Monday his party plans to boycott the elections for the Lower House of Parliament that are scheduled for later this month.

Sawiris said the reason for the decision is the violations of democracy that have been committed by the country’s Islamist parties.
