Brotherhood's party officially declared

The Committee of Parties' Affairs on Monday gave a final and official nod to the Freedom and Justice Party, which was created by the Muslim Brotherhood, to become the first party declared after the fall of Hosni Mubarak regime.

"The Freedom and Justice Party is officially recognized as of today (on Monday) after meeting all requirements stipulated by the New Parties Law," read a statement from the judicial committee. 
   It added that this statement should be issued in the official Gazette within ten days. The Freedom and Justice Party was created by the Muslim Brotherhood and forwarded a notification to the committee two weeks ago.
   The Free Egyptians Party, another new party spearheaded by telecom business tycoon Naguib Sawiris, is expected to submit its notification to the committee today (on Tuesday).
