ABSTRACT
This article compares the political program and style of Turkey's Justice and Development Party (IDP) with the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) of Egypt. The article explores significant similarities between two parties and traces them in common political and economic background conditions. These two conservative parties share in their style of politics characterized as pragmatist, pluralist, gradualist, multilateral, and internationalist with their common goals to bring solutions to decades old solution-waiting economic and political problems of the countries shortly identified as economic underdevelopment, unemployment, poverty, lack or violation of basic human rights and liberties. For the same purpose, the parties share in their support for democracy, human rights, rule of law and economic rationalism. The parties differ in their view to the role of religion in public life, however, for while JDP is characterized as a secularist party of liberal type, the FJP is known with the goal to Islamize the Egyptian political system much as permitted by democratic norms.
