Security services in Assuit cut off power in the street where the headquarters of the MB candidate, Mahmoud Helmy, is located to prevent the women’s conference from being held. The conference aims at raising awareness of the roles of women’s participation in political life.
 
Women supporters gathered under candle light to attend the conference with Wafaa Mashhour, MB candidate for the women’s seat in Assiut. She highlighted the role of women in political participation, calling for their rights.
 
MP, Mahmoud Helmy, also stressed the importance of choosing a representative in parliament, urging women to participate and prevent the wills of residents of the constituency from being thwarted.
 
He commented on security forces cutting power in the street saying that these are reprehensible and irresponsible actions that would only increase the anger of people leading to undesired results.
