He mentioned that debates are underway inside the party to identify and introduce proper candidates, adding that the party has already evaluated the public opinion through opinion polls, the results of which show their high chances of victory in the parliamentary elections.

Meantime, Halbawi voiced the party's preparedness to form alliance with other political parties, and stated, "We have plans to form an alliance with a number of Egyptian political parties."

"We are ready to form alliance with anyone who works for Egypt's freedom and dignity. We will be a friend to anyone who respects the human rights," the politician reiterated.

During a visit to the United Arab Emirates on Monday, Egypt's interim Prime Minister Essam Sharaf signaled his country's parliamentary elections will be held in late September.

"Until now it's business as usual, the dates will be determined by the referendum. The (parliamentary) election will be in late September and after that, the presidential election," Sharaf told reporters in Abu Dhabi.

Meantime, Several political parties formed in the wake of President Hosni Mubarak's ouster in February have called for a delay in elections so the fledgling groups can organize themselves.
