Azerbaijan, Baku, March 3 /Trend, A.Taghiyeva/
During his one-day visit to Egypt, the Turkish President Abdullah Gul may meet with representatives of the Islamic opposition to discuss ways to build political Islam in Egypt, said Turkish analyst on the Middle East Ali Bulac.
"President Gul's visit aims to discuss the construction of political Islam in Egypt and accelerate this process," Bulac told Trend by telephone from Istanbul.
The President of Turkey Abdullah Gul on Thursday will make a one-day visit to Egypt where he will hold talks with the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces, which took over the power after Hosni Mubarak's resignation.
Egypt's president Hosni Mubarak resigned and transferred power to the army on Feb. 11. His resignation was preceded by the degradation of economic and social situation, the collapse in the internal security of the country. It is considered that the main causes of popular unrest in Egypt were social injustice, corruption and poverty. The mass protests and subsequent riots in Egypt killed 365 people and wounded more than 5,500 people.
Muslim Brothers is Egypt's largest Islamic political organization that has officially been banned since 1954.
Previously, the Muslim Brothers Organization stated that it is ready to serve the people, but they will not nominate a presidential candidate and will not form a government.
Recently, the organization has officially announced its decision to create a political party called the Justice and Freedom Party.
In a statement, the Muslim Brothers "stressed that long ago planned to create a party, but it was banned by the government.
Bulac believes that Gul's visit is also aimed at supporting and approving the current Egyptian government. "With his visit to Egypt, Gul expresses his approval of the interim government and willingness to help resolve internal problems of the country," he added.
According to Bulac, the Egyptian people will not object to building democracy on the basis of the Turkish model of political Islam.
