Egypt's opposition National Salvation Front presses Morsi for early presidential election

CAIRO,- Egypt's main opposition bloc, the National Salvation Front (NSF), on Thursday evening urged President Mohamed Morsi to hold an early presidential election.

The front urged Morsi "to listen to the voices of the opposition and respond to their demands by holding early presidential election to meet the objectives of 2011 revolution topped by social justice," according to a statement.

"We are confident that millions of Egyptians will flock to the main fields in peaceful protests on June 30 to assert their will and bring their revolution back to its right track," the statement said.

Activists and opposition groups have been preparing for massive anti-Morsi demonstrations on June 30, the first anniversary of the rule of Morsi, to ask the president to leave.

The NSF supports the public demand of returning to the boxes again in running the presidential and parliamentary elections after a transitional period, when a strong government is formed to target the economic, security and social justice problems.

The statement said an interim government will be tasked with redrafting the constitution, issuing laws and running national reconciliation that includes all social factions.

According to the statement, the NSF opposes any dialogue with Morsi.

Commenting on Morsi's speech delivered on Wednesday, Amro Moussa, a leading member of the NSF, said the president "doesn't take the opposition seriously."

The speech did not take into consideration the millions of signatures collected to push for an early election and did not give a roadmap for reform, Moussa said.

Ahead of the June 30 protests, Morsi also offered on Wednesday to form an independent committee to amend the constitution, with the participation of all political forces and parties, and a higher committee in charge of national reconciliation. However, his words were deemed by many as "superficial" and aimed at trivializing problems.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
