CAIRO: A group of Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated Egyptian politicians released what they called the “Cairo Declaration” Saturday, in which they called on January 25 revolutionaries to “warm-up” to restore the revolution and the democratic path, Al-Shorouq news website reported Saturday.
“This is a patriotic necessity,” the group added in its declaration after holding a press conference today at the house of former Ambassador to Algeria Ibrahim Yousry.
The group includes Saif Abdel Fattah, a professor of political science at Cairo University, and poet Abdul Rahman Yusuf al-Qaradaqwi.
The statement called on revolutionaries to establish a patriotic secretariat for dialogue and coordinate and communicate with political and revolutionary forces to include all political streams and independent figures, Al-Shorouq reported.
The group called for drafting a “charter of honor” to maintain relations among political and revolutionary forces and their interactions with the people.
Concerning the “declaration of principles” announced by several pro-Muslim Brotherhood groups and other political figures in Brussels aimed at restoring the values of the January 25 Revolution, Abdel Fattah said the Brussels declaration was a “consultation declaration and is still open for discussion.”
He said their call aims at unifying all initiatives.
