The Ahmed Maher Front, the main branch of the April 6th Youth Movement, will hold a press conference on Wednesday to announce its stance on the recently issued Parliamentary Elections Law.

According to the front's spokesperson, Mohamed Afifi, the movement will also use the occasion to make known it’s preparations for the million man “End of Emergency Law” protest in Tahrir Square next Friday. The April 6th Youth Movement stated that the planned protest was geared toward achieving three basic demands: the deactivation of the three-decade old emergency law, a clear and short timeline for parliamentary and presidential elections with an aim to transfer power to civilians in the shortest possible time and that Egyptians living abroad be granted suffrage. 

The movement called for peaceful protests, urging Egyptians not to heed any calls for violence on Friday. 

Several political powers and parties have already declared their participation in the upcoming million man protest.
