The student membership of the Constitution Party, Socialist Popular Alliance and the Egyptian Popular Current issued a statement Wednesday denouncing the National Front for Salvation of the Revolution coalition between their parties and figures from the Mubarak regime.

"We students of parties and movements reject that our party leaders and figures stand side by side with remnants of the former regime in the 'Front for Salvation of the Revolution,'" read the statement, adding that they are pressurising their parties to withdraw from the coalition.

The National Front for Salvation of the Revolution was launched on Saturday by tens of opposition political parties and groups to counter the controversial constitutional declaration that was issued by President Mohamed Morsi on Thursday.

The front, which includes the Coalition of Nasserist parties, the Egyptian Social Democratic Party, Free Egypt Party, the Wafd Party, the Free Egyptians Party and the Farmers General Syndicate, declared they will not hold any dialogue meetings with Morsi until the declaration is cancelled.

However, the coalition has sparked criticism among several members of pro-revolution political forces who oppose relations with any figure affiliated with Hosni Mubarak's administration.

"This front will defame our revolution," the youth members continued, "We have always been part of our great revolution and all figures from the former [Mubarak] regime have always been nothing but enemies to us and to our revolution."

Two controversial figures in the front are Mubarak-era former Minister of Foreign Affairs Amr Moussa and head of the liberal Wafd Party Sayed El-Badawi.

Many have also slammed the presence of the Free Egyptians Party, as they accuse the liberal party of having been closely affiliated with the former regime.

Great Photo.
With Egypt population nearing 90 mil, It is quite sad that the face of the opposition has been reduced to this. The photo shows washed out old politicians, with no noble principals. When will the press speak out on the background of those clowns. I am sorry for the youngsters that are fooled by the old foxes. I would like to see those politicians camp out in this cold for any cause. May Allah saves Egypt.

Too late
The "secular" Youth is now part of the counter revolution which is financed by Bordello Arab States like Kuwait and Saudi Arabia. Congratulations. They literally defended yesterday Judges that have acquitted people that were responsible for the Killing of demonstrators. Judges that Mubarak handpicked personally. Judges that oversaw the fraudulent elections that took place under Mubarak. Judges that have dissolved the elected Parliament.You are being used by this Potentates since they fear the revolution that is already knocking on the Doors of Kuwait at least.

Fair game
political leaders you have double face at the same time you are asking Morsi to respect laws and court sentences even it is not fair you are denying on the other hands court sentences regarding killings of Martyrs if we need to respect laws then WE need all to follow that and let us start over and we do not want to hear any voice from now and on talking about Martyrs then Morsi can make his mind .If laws cannot bring justice what is needed for.

That's a shame,
they should cooperate now to reach their common goal instead of searching for divisions. Not all "regime remnants" were sharing Mubarak's ideas.
