Jamal Mubarak for stopping Muslim Brothers in political life
Egypt, Politics, 1/26/2006
Jamal Mubarak, son of the Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, called for forcing by the banned Muslim Brothers groups to stop its involvement in the political life and preventing it from "exploiting religion" to achieve political gains, by obliging the organization to observe Egyptian law.
In long interview to the Egyptian Rose al-Youssef magazine, Jamal Mubarak said that the group does not enjoy a legal or legitimate status, and therefore there is a need to reconsider the current laws to effectively stop the Muslim Brothers if the current laws did not enough mechanisms in them and were not implemented fully.
He added that the issue of Egyptian law, which bans the foundation of parties on religious grounds, requires from the parties and establishments of the civil society to seek ways of dealing with it legally, and not to permit it to continue as an element violating the political process.
The Muslim Brothers achieved a historical victory in the recent parliament's elections by getting 20% of the seats.
Jamal, 41 years old, occupies the post of the secretary of policies in the ruling party. It is noted that many persons close to him in recent years acquired great posts including ministerial posts.
It was rumored at a large scale in recent years that the Egyptian president is qualifying his son to succeed him but Mubarak, the father denied that, together with the son, repeatedly.
