Egypt licenses first moderate Islamic party
February 19, 2011 14:54

CAIRO — An Egyptian court has licensed a moderate Islamic party after its application for legal status was turned down four times by the former Egyptian government.

Abu al-Ila Madi, the founder of Al-Wasat Al-Jadid (the New Center) said that the Supreme Administrative Court has licensed the party Saturday after approving its latest appeal.

Madi said the ruling was "a positive fruit of the Jan. 25 revolution of the freedom generation."

The party was founded in 1996 by activists who split off from the conservative Muslim Brotherhood and sought to create a political movement promoting a tolerant version of Islam with liberal tendencies.
