Several major opposition movements and political parties are calling for protests next Friday in Nasr City after Friday prayers. The protests will demand Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood step down and the army to take control of the state, according to Mohamed Abu Hamed, head of the Hayat ElMasryeen Party.
Abu Hamed said that the demonstrations were being organized cooperatively by a number of different opposition movements including: Al-Dostour, Popular Current, and 6 April Youth Movement.
Spokespeople from all of the above parties and movements denied any involvement in the protests on Friday, saying that they did not agree with Hayat ElMasryeen Party’s call for army involvement.
“We are completely against the army intervening again,” Khaled El-Masry, official spokesperson for the 6 April Youth Movement said.
Members of former presidential candidate Ahmed Shafiq’s El-Haraka El-Watanya El-Masrya Party will be attending, but the party administration itself is not calling for participation in the demonstrations, said Hesham Hashem, deputy founding member of the party.
