History and profile
Reform and Development Misruna Party was founded in 2009. The founders of the party are Anwar Essmat Sadat, the ex-president Anwar Sadat's nephew and the Egyptian billionaire Raymond Lakah. The initial license application of the party was rejected in July 2010. It was legalized in May 2011 in just before the Egypt’s 25 January Revolution in 2012.
The party participated in the Egyptian parliamentary election, 2011–2012 and won 9 seats in the lower house. The party merged with the Misruna party (Our Egypt party) in June 2011; the party name changed slightly.
Although the Reform and Development Misruna Party will participate in the upcoming 2015 parliamentary elections, Sadat has criticized the election process, which has been delayed for 7 months, as well as the Supreme Constitutional Court being allowed to rule on complaints against election laws.
