Cairo, Egypt, May 29, 2012 / 23:20 pm
The Egyptian elections are causing serious doubts among the country's Christians about whether the next president will protect their rights, with the Muslim Brotherhood's commitment being especially unclear, a senior Catholic bishop in Egypt has said.
"We have a situation with the elections and the constitution and the future of our country – whoever wants to be president needs to guarantee a good constitution, in which everyone will be able to find his place in our country," Coptic Catholic Bishop Antonios Aziz Mina of Giza told Aid to the Church In Need in an interview published May 28.
The next president, whoever he is, "needs to guarantee the minimum of liberties we seek," he stated.
"Whoever will guarantee liberty and democracy and a good constitution for Egypt will have our vote."
