The Wafd party has announced on Saturday that it refuses to participate in the next million man march planned to take place in Tahrir Square on the first Friday after Eid, dubbed “Correcting the Path Friday.”

A senior Wafd member said that Egyptians are now seeking stability and security, adding that too many million man marches makes these demonstrations lose their meaning.

The Wafd member, who refused to reveal his name, said that the counter-revolution is working on prolonging the stage of instability by creating chaos and stirring political and sectarian strife. He said such chaos in meant to hinder the democratisation process, which aims at electing new state institutions and drafting a new constitution.
