Galal Morra, secretary general of the Salafi Nour Party, said the party has so far decided not to take part in a protest to be staged by Islamist powers Tuesday.

He added that the party is busy preparing for a campaign to persuade voters to vote in favor of the new constitution, scheduled to be put to a nationwide referendum Saturday.

An Islamist powers coalition, which brings together the Muslim Brotherhood, the Salafi Dawah and other groups, called for two protests Tuesday in front of Rabea al-Adaweya and Aal Rashdan mosques in Nasr City for their members to voice their support for Mohamed Morsy as the legitimate president.

The party will intensify its campaigns to raise awareness about the new constitution and encourage citizens to vote “yes” in the referendum, in order to continue building state institutions and end the transitional period, Morra said.
