A presidential source has denied to Al-Ahram Arabic news website Wednesday evening news of possible resignations by Deputy Prime Minister Ziad Bahaa El-Dini and the presidential political advisor for strategic affairs.

The source further added that no final decision has been made regarding the resignation of Vice President for International Affairs Mohamed ElBaradei.

Earlier Wednesday, ElBaradei had submitted his resignation letter to Interim President Adly Mansour.

The move came after scores were killed in a security forces crackdown on loyalists of ousted Islamist president Mohamed Morsi.

ElBaradei earlier demanded high-level assurances that the operation would not veer from the within the boundaries of the law, and according to two sources “threatened to resign if the death toll among the protestors proved to be high.”
