CAIRO, June 30 (Itar-Tass) - All opponents of Egypt’s President Mohamed Morsi should take to the streets on Sunday to demand the head of state call an early presidential election, Nobel Peace Prize laureate, leader of the Al-Dustour Party Mohamed ElBaradei, said on Saturday.
“Everybody in Egypt should declare the wish to go to the polls again to resume the efforts to build the basement of our common home,” said ElBaradei, a former head of the International Atomic Energy Agency.
He argues that the proclaimed goals of the revolution “to live a human life and to be treated like a human” have “regrettably failed to be achieved.”
“We believe that we are in a stalemate. The country may suffer a crash not only because the president is from the Muslim Brotherhood party, which rules the country entirely on its own, but also because the (ruling) regime is utterly incapable,” ElBaradei said.
“We have allowed Morsi to lead the country forward, but he is unable to do that. The country is falling into decay. This is not a revolution,” he said. Egypt on Sunday marks the first anniversary of Morsi’s presidency.
Tens of thousands of his opponents plan to take to the streets to express no confidence in the head of state and demand his resignation. As the daily Al-Ahram has reported, hundreds of people have already started gathering in Cairo’s main squares. According to some mass media, eight people died in clashes between the supporters and opponents of President Morsi on Saturday. There have been over 600 casualties in such clashes since June 26, the local media quote the Health Ministry as saying.
