Freedom and Justice Party Pledges Participation in All Popular Actions to Achieve Revolution Goals
‘In liberty square, until parliament returns’ is one of the slogans Egyptians chant in the famed protest rendezvous, in the heart of Cairo; and is the FJP’s promise to the People and the unelected interim ruling Military Council that so callously disbanded the first democratic institution in Egypt, elected by 30 million people.

The Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) expresses its sincere thanks and deep appreciation to the great Egyptian people for their massive response and powerful, positive participation in the million-man marches and demonstrations on Tuesday 19 June 2012 rejecting the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF)’s so-called constitutional supplement and its decision to dissolve the People’s Assembly.


The FJP’s Executive Office, at the conclusion of its meeting, today Wednesday June 20, affirms that it will join the Egyptian people and all political and revolutionary parties, groups and movements, in all public actions and events, until the demands of Tuesday’s million-man demonstration – under the banner ‘In liberty square, until parliament returns’ – are met, so as to achieve the following objectives:

-  The return of the elected parliament to its legislative and oversight duties.

-  Cancellation of the complementary constitutional declaration that reduced the powers of the President of the Republic and created a justification for SCAF to stay on and not to hand over power in full, in accordance with the agreed timetable.

-  Cancellation of the decision to grant military police and intelligence officers powers to arrest and detain civilians.

-  Allowing the elected Constituent Assembly to carry out its mission of drafting the new constitution, in order for that to be expressive of all the Egyptian people, and not to disrupt the work of the Assembly or to establish another Assembly not based on the legitimacy of the March 2011 referendum.

The FJP calls its members in provinces across Egypt to join all citizens in the pursuit of these demands by the peaceful means guaranteed by the law, and affirmed by the blessed January revolution.
