  El-Sadat Requests Dissolution of NDP, Restoration of State-Owned NDP Headquarters  
  Mr. Anwar Esmat El-Sadat, party founder, made a statement to the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces to dissolve the NDP, restore its entire state-owned headquarters and to reserve all of its bank assets pending the review the financial dealings of NDP leaders.
Those of whom were standing as the second row of NDP cronies, after the fall of the primary NDP symbols who ruined Egypt’s political and social life and looted money and resources belonging to the Egyptian people.
Sadat pointed out that if the Supreme Administrative Court did not approve to dissolve NDP, so its leaders and members must accept the fact that their party has become an ordinary party within other political parties, and must abide by the same rules.
They must bear and face the difficulties which other parties face, related to the headquarters, funding, and the active and effective political presence, new programs and activities according to citizens and party members.
