Mubarak's former deputy Sulaiman accuses Muslim brotherhood of subversive acts

Cairo, Sat, 14 Apr 2012 ANI

Cairo, April 14 (ANI): The controversial presidential contender of Egypt Omar Sulaiman, who was Hosni Mubarak's deputy for few days, has accused the Muslim Brotherhood of being involved in subversive acts during a popular revolt that topped the former president.

"They torched police stations and several vital facilities," The Gulf News quoted Sulaiman, as saying during the launch of his presidential campaign.

During the campaign, Sulaiman told his supporters that he had decided to stand for the elections, and lead the creation of an Islamist state in Egypt.

"The Brotherhood wants to seize the pinnacle of power and control all state institutions to turn Egypt into a religious state," Sulaiman told a local state-run newspaper.

Banned and oppressed under Mubarak, the Muslim Brotherhood has full control over both houses of the Egyptian parliament.

The parliament on Thursday had passed an amended law that barred Sulaiman and other former officials who held senior posts in the Mubarak regime from contesting the presidential elections.

Thousands of Egyptians, mainly Islamists, on Friday rallied to Tahrir Square in central Cairo to demanding Mubarak's loyalists to be barred from holding public offices.

The demonstrators denounced Sulaiman's presidential bid, calling for him to be sent to prison. (ANI)
