Egyptian opposition group Muslim Brotherhood says it will take its political struggle to the streets after claiming that Egypt's recent elections were "rigged" to make sure the movement was excluded from parliament, according to a Reuters report.

The Islamist movement's leader, Mohamed Badie said the Brotherhood would use "peaceful means of dissent" against the parliament, which he said di not reflect the will of Egypt's voters."Absent from parliament...the opposition will take to the streets," Badie said in a Reuters interview.



He said the Brotherhood would join with other opposition groups in protests that would be "legal, constitutional and en masse".

Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak's ruling National Democratic Party (NDP) won 420 of the 508 contested seats in the elections on November 28 and December 5.
