CAIRO: The National Alliance to Support Legitimacy called Saturday for demonstrations throughout the week across Egypt’s governorates in rejection of the results of the presidential election.

The coalition rejects the legitimacy of the interim government and the ouster of former president Mohamed Morsi, and called for people to boycott products made by companies that “promote the July 3 military coup,” to be followed by mass civil disobedience.

Magdy Qorqor, leading member at the NCSL told The Cairo Post that the boycott would extend to newspapers and TV channels owned by businessmen who support the “coup,” although he did not say when such a boycott would begin.

He said to Friday’s demonstrations included millions of Muslim Brotherhood members, and said the demonstrations would last through the end of the week in public squares and even inside prisons through hunger strikes.

The coalition announced the “fall of the coup” May 28, citing what it deemed was a low voter turnout to the elections.

”An unprecedented boycott has revealed the failure of the military’s political roadmap” that followed its ouster of former President Mohamed Morsi, the coalition added in its statement.
