Former presidential contender Ayman Nour criticized army chief and Defense Minister Abdel-Fatah al-Sisi’s call for mass protests on Friday which seek to authorize him to confront “terrorism and violence.”
“We ask Sisi to withdraw his call,” Nour, a liberal politician and former lawmaker who stood in the 2005 presidential elections against topped president Hosni Mubarak, tweeted.
“Otherwise, Sisi should resign, shed his military uniform and work in politics.”
"I'm asking the Egyptian people to go out like they did on June 30 and July 3," al-Sisi had said in a televised address at a graduation ceremony for military cadets.
"I want you to show the world that you are authorizing me to confront any possible violence and terrorism," he added.Last Mod: 25 Temmuz 2013, 09:52
