Mohamed Saad al-Katatny, former secretary-general of the Muslim Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party (FJP), won the presidency of the party on Friday, October 19, on the electoral slogan, "A strong party to build Egypt." Al Katatny said that consensus among all Egyptian political parties is crucial for enhancing cooperation.
Meanwhile, Egyptians took to Tahrir Square again, protesting the Muslim Brotherhood's overwhelming influence in the post-revolution government along with its party affiliation, The Freedom and Justice Party. Many Egyptians, including liberals, leftists and revolutionaries ride on a similar slogan, "Egypt For All Egyptians." Protesters' demands include redrafting a new constitution that protects and represents all Egyptians, establishing minimum and maximum wages, and retrials for those that were acquitted of of killings and crimes during the revolution.
