A lawmaker from Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood said Thursday that there would be "no referendum" on the country's peace treaty with Israel.
A lawmaker from Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood said Thursday that there would be "no referendum at all" on the country's peace treaty with Israel, hours after the Islamist group's presidential candidate made his unexpected bid official.
Asked whether a Brotherhood-led government would put the 1979 Camp David Accords to a referendum, as many of the group's leaders have promised, Mr. Dardery said no.
In Washington, Mr. Dardery said the Brotherhood fielded a candidate "to make sure that [the] democracy road is protected by the people of Egypt," arguing that the military council had refused to give the parliament sufficient authority.
