Explained the member of the Political Bureau in the National Wisdom Movement, Salah al-Arabawi, reasons to adopt the wisdom of the option of the opposition.
“We are the cradle of the opposition in our campaign in 2014. We have said that the two wings of democracy must be complemented by a national majority and political opposition. We have been discussing the option of the opposition for almost a year and we have prepared a full project,” he said in a statement.
“We did not want to go there on the eve of the formation of the government because we wanted to give the necessary opportunity to the government of Adel Abdul Mahdi.”
“We do not say that wisdom wants to stifle the technocratic government even before its birth. We are weak government performance on many issues (services, anti-corruption, security retreat, relationship with the region, etc.),” he said. The wise will know that and find it clearer than the sun in the fourth day. ”
“We did not intend to topple the government or overthrow the regime, but we want to practice this political duty that has been stalled for nearly a century,” he said.
Al-Arabawi said that “the opposition we have chosen is legitimate, not opposition to the state and not opposition to power, but constructive political opposition, and we will applaud the successes of Abdul Mahdi and his team and support them wherever they are and we will be like the sword of decency on laxity, negligence and procrastination.”
“This move will lead to the reengineering of political alliances sooner or later, and we will defend this option even if we remain alone without political advocacy,” said a member of the political bureau of the National Wisdom Movement.
He added: “Our new project is not a political reaction but it is a political project of its own. We do not need the government’s failure to prove the effectiveness of this project. The success stems from its successes and is not based on the failure of others.” Borders or from within. ”
