Divisions in the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood? I don't think so

The matter of fact is divisions are there because there is no real alternative to the brotherhood. When I was in Cairo last month, activists told me that the brotherhood sees a major opportunity in this elections, and is trying to support "independent" candidates to have a parliamentary majority alongside its 50% quota. I think the Islamists will definitely have a majority as time is not on the side of the various secular factions.

"The result has been a kind of paralysis. While Mubarak’s National Democratic Party is no longer on the scene, only a few alternatives have gained official status, and two of them — the Muslim Brotherhood and a moderate Islamist party called al-Wasat — have been around for years.
As for the new political groups, only three secular parties have submitted papers and are awaiting licenses. But time is not on their side. Egypt’s parliamentary elections are scheduled for September, although some activists and officials, including interim Prime Minister Essam Sharaf, have called for the vote to be postponed".
