Islamists decided on Tuesday to delay Friday's pro-Sharia protest to a date yet to be announced, Islamist leader Tarek al-Zomor said.
Leader of the ultraconservative al-Gamaa al-Islamiya, Zomor insisted in a press conference on the importance of implementing Sharia (Islamic law) in Egypt and guaranteeing it in the constitution.
Senior member of the Muslim Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party, Azab Mostafa, said in the same conference that the Brotherhood does not wish to cancel the protest but merely postpone it until the final draft of the constitution is revealed.
Mostafa insisted that no one can undermine the Brotherhood's stance on the subject.
The ultraconservative group had called on Islamist political forces and parties to assemble this Friday to push for the implementation of Islamic Sharia.
