There are concerns that the Muslim Brotherhood may try to take over if Mubarak cedes power. The group advocates a return to Sharia law and is banned in Egypt. However, according to Mohammad Mursi, an MP for the Muslim Brotherhood from 2000-2005 insists that the Brotherhood simply wants democracy.

 

He's currently an executive member and spokesman for the group and says that "we are not going through the process of taking over, because we want free elections... We accept the people's will."
