Several names have been circulating as suggestions for a "national salvation government" that many activists now propose should take over authority from the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces.  

Tahrir demonstrations that have entered their fifth day are demanding an end to military rule and the handing over of power to a civilian government. Activists participating in Tahrir have started fielding suggestions as to who is best suited to lead until the end of elections.

Names so far suggested include former director of the International Atomic Energy Agency and presidential hopeful Mohamed ElBaradei, ex-Muslim Brotherhood member and presidential hopeful Abd El-Moneim Abu El-Fotouh, Karama Party member and presidential hopeful Hamdin El-Sabahi, law professor Hossam Eisa, Salafi presidential hopeful Hazem Abu Ismail, economist Ahmed El-Naggar, prominent physician Mohamed Ghoneim and judge Zakaria Abd El-Aziz.

The “We are All Khaled Said” Facebook page has suggested Sabahi and Abu El-Fotouh to head the national salvation government. The National Association for Change (NAC) suggested ElBaradei. The Justice and Freedom Youth Movement suggested ElBaradei, Abu El-Fotouh, El-Naggar, Ghoneim and Eissa. The 6 April Youth Movement suggested Abu El-Fotouh, ElBaradei, Abu Ismail and Abd El-Aziz.

Elbaradei
Elbaradei would be an excellent choice to head a transitional government, he has impeccable integrity, and I believe everyone would agree he is an honest man. However, Elbaradei must set conditions if he is to accept, such as: -Elbaradei must be given real authority to act without SCAF interference. -SCAF must relinquish power to a elected civilian government. I do not trust SCAF, so I believe the military council is only interested in schemes and tricks to calm the situation and retain power.
