Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi.

Cairo - Egypt's main opposition coalition, the National Salvation Front (NSF), said on Tuesday it would not participate in April's parliamentary elections due to a lack of guarantees of a transparent process.

“The decision of the Front, unanimously, is to boycott the elections,” member Sameh Ashour told reporters after a meeting of the coalition, which groups mainly liberal and leftists parties and movements. - Sapa-AFP
