CAIRO: The National Alliance to Support Legitimacy (NASL) called its supporters protest during inauguration ceremony of President-elect Abdel Fatah al-Sisi on Sunday, according to a Friday statement.

The alliance called its supporters to organize “massive and huge” protests in all squares, except the headquarters of the inauguration ceremony of President-elect Sisi “so as not give a chance to the coup’s militants [to clash with them] and to refuse the new farce,” statement added.

The Freedom and Justice Party, the political arm of the Muslim Brotherhood, issued a statement on Friday stating that they will not recognize any decisions issued by Sisi, according to al-Masryoon news website.

“[The Alliance] will recognize neither the coup regime, nor any decisions issued since July 3, 2013 until the return of the president-elect Mohamed Morsi as the President of Egypt.”

The party called on all revolutionary and national powers to restore the “one square spirit,” and to continue its struggle.

Sisi’s inauguration would increase their insistence to complete “the revolution’s path and restoring all its demands,” the alliance said.

The Egyptian presidency office invited last week about 22 countries to attend the ceremony, which will be held in Kobri El-Qobba Presidential Palace on Sunday.

Amongst the countries whose leaders were invited are Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Bahrain, Russia, the U.S., Ethiopia, Iran, and North and South Sudan, Sky News reported.

The High Presidential Election Commission announced Sisi the winner of the presidential elections last Tuesday, with 96.91 percent of valid votes. His rival Hamdeen Sabbahi received 3.09 percent of votes.
