The Muslim Brotherhood is taking steps to gain power in Egypt.
The radical Islamic group, which gave birth to al-Qaeda, had been banned from participating as a political party in the country under former President Hosni Mubarak.
However, Egypt's interim government is allowing the Brotherhood to re-establish itself as the Freedom and Justice Party.
The organization has formed an alliance with the top political group in Egypt this week, according to a report by Foreign Policy Magazine.
The Brotherhood has allied itself with the liberal Wafd Party, a move that ensures the radical group will play a key role in Egypt's new government after the upcoming parliamentary elections.
The coalition "will dictate the electoral outcome" said Freedom and Justice Party Vice President Essam el-Erian, who encouraged other political movements to join.
"The organization and the party and Egyptian society are working in a new era. This is a very dangerous political period," he said. "We want to pass the next few months safely with the help of others."
A new parliament will soon be tasked with selecting a committee responsible for drawing up Egypt's new constitution.
