A senior Egyptian political analyst and expert blamed the US, Saudi Arabia and Qatar for creating a gap between the Egyptian people and army, saying that their efforts aim to trouble elections in the Muslim Arab country which has just experienced a revolution.
The US and the Persian Gulf Arab states have plans to sow discord between the Egyptian nation and army in a bid to prevent a peaceful holding of elections in the country, Director of Yafa Research Center in Egypt Rafat Sayyed Ahmad told FNA on Monday.
The political pundit further pointed out that the US, Saudi Arabia and Qatar are trying to deter Egyptians from holding a peaceful and fruitful elections as they know that realization of the revolutionary causes of Egypt require a peaceful and successful arrangement and holding of elections in the country.
He said various political streams in the country are experiencing widened gaps due to the efforts made by Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the US.
"We are living under such circumstances that horizontal and vertical gaps have widened so much that we don't know which stream approves or disapproves of a given option and this is mainly the result of the efforts made by certain Persian Gulf countries, such as Qatar and Saudi Arabia, along with the US," he said.
In relevant remarks last month, a senior member of the Egyptian Al-Ikhwan al-Muslimun party unveiled that Washington is supporting a number of Egyptian political parties financially in a bid to influence the results of the upcoming legislative elections in the Muslim country.
"In a bid to realize its goals in Egypt, the White House is trying to sow discord among different Egyptian ethnic groups through financial and political support," Sobhi Saleh told FNA in Cairo in October.
"Its financial support and other issues have been unveiled and proved and the Egyptian justice ministry is studying a number of cases in this regard," the politician said.
According to an announced timetable, Egyptian elections, the first since the ouster of President Hosni Mubarak in February, will be held in three stages between November 28 and January 10.
After that, an election for the less powerful Shura Council, the chamber's upper house, will be held by March.
The new parliament will then convene and appoint members of a committee to draft a new constitution. The draft constitution will be put to a national referendum later.
Yemeni Revolutionaries Urge UN Security Council to Adopt HRW's Recommendations

The Organizing Committee of Popular Revolution Youth demanded the UN Security Council to adopt the recommendations of the Human Rights Watch on Yemen's Saudi-backed dictator Ali Abdullah Saleh and his cronies. FNA reported.
The HRW report, which stressed that Yemeni would continue their protests until their demand are met, has called on the Security Council to impose an asset freeze and a travel ban on ousted dictator Ali Abdullah Saleh and other senior officials responsible for these previous attacks on civilians when it meets November 28 to discuss the crisis in Yemen.
HRW also asked the Security Council to dissociate itself from the portion of an agreement that Saleh signed on November 23 that offers the toppled president and other top officials immunity for serious violations of international human rights and humanitarian law in exchange for leaving office.
The army's indiscriminate shelling in Taizz shows President Saleh's brazen disregard for the lives of Yemeni civilians right up to the time he signed a deal to transfer power said Joe Stork, deputy Middle East director at Human Rights Watch.
Because President Saleh's signature is only as good as the actions that follow, concerned governments and the UN Security Council should still impose targeted sanctions until these unlawful attacks stop and hold Yemeni authorities accountable.
