CAIRO - A Muslim Brotherhood leader vowed on Friday that members who join other political parties would be expelled from the group, in the latest sign of internal rifts.

The Brotherhood, Egypt's biggest political group, is seen as the best prepared for a parliamentary vote due in September. But divisions have emerged over electoral strategy.

The Brotherhood's secretary-general, Mahmoud Hussein, was quoted on Friday by al-Shorouk newspaper as saying members who join other political parties would be forced to leave the group.

"They either voluntarily resign from the Brotherhood or they will get fired," Hussein was quoted as saying.
