Article summary: 

Coptic Orthodox Community Council Head Tharwat Bāsīlī said that bishops do not have the right to support parliamentary candidates, saying that, as a spiritual entity, the Church’s doors are open to anyone. He also said that the Muslim Brotherhood lost its credibility during the previous parliamentary cycle in which they proved they never deliver on their promises.
