Abstract

electoral success in Egypt during the year of 2012. I aimed to do this by

presidential election was because the majority of the Egyptian people are
Muslims, because of issues of social freedom, political freedom, and the
protection of fundamental rights. Furthermore, because of their clarity when the
organization stood on the people's side during the revolution and offered
education and healthcare to the poor, and also because of their complicated but
structural branching system as well as their mobilization under state repression. (Less)
