Egypt: National Salvation Front Lists Conditions Before Dialogue

Egypt's National Salvation Front (NSF) set on Tuesday several conditions to participate in the national dialogue called for by the presidency to settle the country's political crisis. The Front stressed that there will be "No elections without guarantees."

The Front said in a statement, aired on AlJazaeera, that the conditions are:-

  • Taking "serious" actions towards punishing killers of the martyrs through appointing civil judges to conduct investigations with all the responsible officials.
  • Forming a national salvation government that ensures efficiency and credibility
  • Selecting a new attorney general
  • Forming a neutral committee to amend the controversial articles in the constitution.

Sameh Ashour,who listed the conditions, demanded calling off the elections until those demands are met.

He said that the Front considers the initiative of the Salafi Nour Party a positive contribution to get out of the crisis.

Ashour held the Muslim Brotherhood and the president, who belongs to it, responsible for Egypt's deterioration on the economic and social levels, saying that it is due to the Brotherhood's intervention in all the state bodies.
