CAIRO: The Muslim Brotherhood withdrew their list for the Veterinarians Syndicate’s board elections, board member Mohamed Seif told Youm7 Friday.
Seif, coordinator of the Brotherhood’s “Veterinarians for the renaissance of Egypt” list, added that the Brotherhood has 12 members in the syndicate’s current board and “want to give other currents the chance to participate in the syndicate.”
The elections will be held over 12 seats on the syndicate’s board – half of the board seats – and will be supervised by 37 consultants from the State Lawsuits Authority, Sada el-Balab reported.
The elections are expected to last until 5 p.m. Friday, and are the first in 18 years, according to Veto Gate.
The Veterinarians Syndicate had joined strikes by doctors, dentists and pharmacists to protest the law on incentives and demand the adoption of the original cadre law.
