Muslim Brotherhood presidential candidate Mohamed Morsy met Sunday with former election opponents Abdel Moneim Abouel Fotouh and Hamdeen Sabbahi to discuss the demands of protesters in Tahrir Square following the verdict in the trial of former President Hosni Mubarak.
On Saturday, Mubarak and former Interior Minister Habib al-Adly were given life sentences for failing to stop the killing of protesters during the 18-day uprising early last year.
The candidates planned to discuss applying the Political Isolation Law to Ahmed Shafiq, who will compete against Morsy in the runoff; avenging the blood of the martyrs of the 25 January revolution; holding a retrial for Mubarak and other figures from his regime; and forming a civilian presidential council.
“There is a strong desire to complete the revolution and achieve its objectives,” said Sabbahi. “You can see that in all of Egypt’s squares.”
Sabbahi’s campaign said the result of the meeting would soon be announced to the public.
