Pope hopes leftist Tagammu Party will play a greater role

The head of Egypt's Coptic Orthodox Church, Pope Shenouda III, hopes the leftist Tagammu Party will pay a greater role in post-revolutionary politics, he said on Sunday.

This hope was voiced during a meeting with Tagammu Party Chairman Refaat al-Saeed, state-run news agency MENA said.

The agency quoted a source at the papal office saying Shenouda's talks with Saeed tackled Egypt's current political situation, the future of political parties, and demands for a civil state.

The source said Saeed focused on the role of religious institutions in promoting moderate dialogue and emphasizing religious and cultural diversity in Egypt.
