The June 30 Front along with the National Salvation Front (NSF) nominated Mohamed ElBaradei as the representative of the opposition in talks with the government to solve the current situation.

“He [ElBaradei] won’t be all alone, we [the NSF and June 30 Front] are here to advise him,” said Yasser Al-Hawary , a member of the June 30 Front.

ElBaradei will be responsible for holding talks with the government to “find a solution for this crisis” and will start the talks by nominating the head of the Supreme Constitutional Court as acting president, Al-Hawary added.

Al-Hawary also stressed that no matter what, “we will not talk to Morsi [directly]”.

The June 30 Front is part of the Tamarod movement, that organised the mass protests on 30 June demanding the removal of the presidency and calling for early presidential elections.

ElBaradei is a Nobel Peace Prize laureate and was the Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency. In 2010, he returned to Egypt and founded the National Association for Change, an important opposition group that challenged ousted President Hosni Mubarak.

He is the  founder of Al-Dostour Party, after the 25 January revolution, which is currently part of the NSF.
