The general coordinator of the Freedom and Justice Party-led Democratic Alliance, Wahid Abdel Meguid, said a meeting of the committee mediating between the FJP and the Free Egyptians and Social Democratic parties to revolve the stalemate over the formation of the constituent assembly had yielded no results on Sunday.
The meeting was attended by Mohamed al-Beltagy, representing the FJP, Ahmed Saeed, head of the Free Egyptians Party, and Ziad Bahaa el-Din, head of the parliamentary bloc for the Social Democratic Party, Abdel Maguid told Al-Masry Al-Youm.
The head of the Wasat partys parliamentary bloc mediated the meeting.
The Muslim Brotherhood would voluntarily replace some assembly members with alternates from the parties that feel underrepresented, Beltagy said.
The FJP refused to say reveal many members the party would withdraw before the proposition was accepted.
Saeed and Bahaa el-Din, however, asked that the constituent assembly be dissolved and completely re-formed, Beltagy reported.
FJP MP Mostafa Ahmed told Al-Masry Al-Youm that the party is making contacts with other parties and withdrawn members regarding possible substitutions.
Deputy of the Shura Council and member of the constituent assembly Tarek al-Suhari said the stalemate is about to end as some withdrawn members have backtracked and will take part in Wednesday's meeting.
