He explained that the file of human rights does not end at the freedom of speech and prisoners, and the accusations in this file are not credible, and he said, “Why do they not talk about the right to security, transportation, health, housing, and other rights?”
Regarding coordination between parties during the next stage, the deputy said, “We do not close cooperation with parties, who have different political views. We are all national parties, and the door is open for cooperation with any party,” adding, “The secret of the Egyptian integrety is diversity.”
