The Chairman of the Executive Board of Egypt's Al-Dostour Party, Imad Abu Ghazi, on Tuesday said that they found Egyptian President Muhammad Mursi's efforts positive.
Abu Ghazi talked to the Anadolu Agency (AA) and made remarks about President Mursi's works.
"We find Mursi's works positive. Positive changes took place in Egypt since the old administration left the government," Abu Ghazi stated.
"All those arrested during the Egyptian revolution must be released. We pay high attention to the completion of investigations against various journalists and the establishment of a board that would supervise TV channels," Abu Ghazi stressed.
"As a political party, we aim to educate the youth so that they carry the revolution of January 25 further to reach goals. We want to have five million members in five years," Abu Ghazi said.
"We will begin dialogue with all sides in Egypt so the revolution reaches its goals. It is too early to speak about a possible coalition in Egypt. I believe that a possible coalition would change the structure of the parliament," Abu Ghazi noted.
"The Chairman of our political party, Dr. Mohamed El Baradei (former head of the International Atomic Energy Agency, or IAEA), is a symbolic name for all trends, groups and political parties in Egypt as he had called for 'change' before the Mubarak regime fell," Abu Ghazi also said.
