CAIRO: The National Alliance to Support Legitimacy (NASL) issued a statement on Facebook Sunday in which they said they will continue boycotting any ceremonies or events regarding newly elected President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi and called Sisi “the one isolated from people behind walls of fear.”
They said that they will not acknowledge Sisi as being president and criticized the expenses of his inauguration, saying that Sisi spent too much money taken from “poor people” for a “fancy” inauguration and used it as if “he was spending his own money.”
NASL also renewed its “rejection of the coup” in reference to the events of July 3, 2013. It said in a statement that they support the “people’s revolution” and called for protests on July 3, 2014 against the “Military Coup.”
Meanwhile, on a Sunday interview on Al Jazeera, Muslim Brotherhood member Gamal Heshmat also refused to acknowledge Sisi as being President and described him as the head of a “coup” over the legitimate President Mohamed Morsi.
He also criticized Sisi’s comments saying that there is no place for those involved in bloodshed in Egypt because “he is the one who killed his opponents at the Rabaa and Nahda sit-ins.” Heshamat also said that Sisi’s regime is much worse than that of former President Hosni Mubarak‘s because Mubarak put people in jails while Sisi “kills them.”
