The new 'Revolution Path Front,' aimed at providing an alternative to the current "polarisation" between the military and the Muslim Brotherhood, has chosen its official spokespersons, Al-Ahram's Arabic website reported.

The group's new spokespersons, in charge of media communications, include renowned novelist Ahdaf Soueif, American University in Cairo professor Rabab El-Mahdi, April 6 Youth Movement founder Ahmed Maher, Cairo University researcher Hatem Tallima, Strong Egypt Party member Mohamed El-Baqer, Justice and Freedom youth movement member Mostafa Shawki, and activists Ali Ghoneim and Mohamed Youssef; founding 'Revolutionaries' member Mohamed Ibrahim Shetigi told Al-Ahram on Wedensday.

On Facebook, the 'Revolutionaries' front presents itself as an alternative group that will fight "military oppression" and "the Muslim Brotherhood's violence and sectarianism." The front, launched on Tuesday, says its aims are to achieve social justice, combat the formation of an oppressive regime, achieve equality between citizens, set the path for transitional justice, and adopt foreign policies that guarantee national independence.

The 'Revolution Path Front' was founded by 152 independent activists and representatives from various revolutionary groups, among them well-known activist Alaa Abdel-Fattah and labor lawyer Haitham Mohamadein. The front already includes leading members of the April 6 Youth Movement, the April 6 Democratic Front, the Strong Egypt Party, the Revolutionary Socialists, and the Justice and Freedom youth movement.

Egypt's military led a coalition of political forces in removing the Muslim Brotherhood's Mohamed Morsi from the presidency in July, following mass national protests against the former elected leader. Since then, the country's political life has been deeply polarised between supporters of the new interim authorities and followers of the ousted president.
