The AP reports:
The Muslim Brotherhood's candidate in next month's runoff vote for Egypt's president says he will ensure the full rights of Christians and women if he is elected.
The Islamist group's Mohammed Morsi also sought to reassure pro-democracy youth groups behind the uprising that toppled Hosni Mubarak's regime 15 months ago, saying the right to stage peaceful protests will be protected.
Speaking in a Tuesday news conference, Morsi also promised a broad coalition government and that the country's new constitution will be written by a panel that truly represents the nation.
He said he planned to appoint Christians as presidential advisers and name one as vice president 'if possible'. He said he will not impose an Islamic dress code in public for women.
