Early parliamentary elections will be held in Egypt in September 2011, following the ouster of President Hosni Mubarak, after which the interim military rulers dissolved the parliament of Egypt. In late 2010 a parliamentary election was held, though it was followed by controversy and repression as well as accusations of fraud. Following similar events in Tunisia, Egyptian activists called for protesters to turn up in cities around Egypt on various specially-designated days of rages. Though violence was reported at some points, protests were largely peaceful with the army staying quiet until 10 February with calls for Mubrak to resign. The following day, Vice President Omar Suleiman announced Mubarak's resignation from the presidency while turning power over to the military. Head of the military Mohamed Hussein Tantawi would lead the country in the interim period till the election. The announcement was followed by widspread celebrations in Egypt and international reactions. The Muslim Brotherhood announced on 15 February it would form a party the Freedom and Justice Party to run in the election.
