So Much for Democracy in Egypt: Muslim Brotherhood Political Party Banned

leave a comment »

CAIRO (AFP) — An Egyptian court on Saturday ordered the dissolution of the Freedom and Justice Party, the political wing of the already banned Muslim Brotherhood movement.

The decision comes after the authorities designated the Brotherhood a “terrorist organization” in December following the ouster of democratically-elected president Mohamed Morsi by the military.

The FJP had come out on top in every election in Egypt between its creation in the wake of the country’s Arab Spring uprising in 2011 and Morsi’s removal in July 2013.

In its ruling on Saturday, the Supreme Administrative Court ordered “the dissolution of the Freedom and Justice Party because it broke the law regarding political parties.”

According to media reports, the decision is final and not open to appeal.

The military toppled Morsi, Egypt’s first democratically elected president, after massive protests calling for his removal following a single year of turbulent rule.
