A spokesman for Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood says the group intends to form a political party, once democracy is established.

But he also stresses that the bloc does not intend to seek a majority in Parliament, or field a candidate in the upcoming Presidential election. The Brotherhood's charter calls for the creation of an Islamic state.

The government of deposed leader Hosni Mubarak portrayed the organization as a force looking to take over the country, and launched fierce crackdowns against its members.

Essam El-Arian, Muslim Brotherhood Spokesman, said, "It is now time of organizing ourselves, and time for others also to have the same opportunities to organize themselves in political parties. The millions who appear in the revolution, and revolt, and have this victory have the right to express themselves, and have also the right to organize themselves in a multiparty system, real multiparty system."
