Egypt's military ruler Field Marshal Hussein Tantawi warned on Sunday that no one will be allowed to pressure the armed forces, amid mass protests demanding an end to military rule.

Tantawi also confirmed that parliamentary elections will take place as scheduled. Tomorrow sees polls open in the first round of six, covering both upper and lower houses of parliament.

He asked leading politicians Mohamed ElBaradei and Amr Moussa to support newly appointed prime minister Kamal El-Ganzouri, despite vehement rejection of the nomination from protesters in Tahrir Square.
