The secretariat of the Misr Al-Qawia Party has not received any resignations, said the party’s secretary general in a statement released on Tuesday.
Ahmed Salem said that the media reported the resignations without confirmation from party authorities, and urged the media “not to report inaccurate information during this crucial period.”
Mohamad Othman, a spokesman of the party, said on Tuesday that members had left the party but did not specify a number, qualifying that they were “individual cases.”
26 members left the party on Monday after the party decided to withdraw from the military’s roadmap and demand the resignation of interim president Adly Mansour in response to the Republican Guard clashes, according to several media reports.
The resigning members said that the party demanded the resignation of Mansour only days after coming to power, but “didn’t even move a finger over the blood spilt” for months during former president Mohamed Morsi’s reign.
