Nasserist figure and ex-presidential candidate Hamdeen Sabbahi said in a meeting with presidential aide Ahmed El-Meslemani Saturday that the interim government needs to take "decisive measures" towards achieving social justice, according to Ahram Arabic's news website.

"I warn the government that any failure to take adequate steps to uphold social justice is against the 30 June revolution," Sabbahi told reporters following his meeting with El-Meslemani.

The meeting is one of a series of talks El-Meslemani has held with political figures to discuss their reflections on the transitional period, following the ouster of president Mohamed Morsi by the Egyptian military on 3 July amidst nationwide protests.

Following the announcement of Morsi's ouster, Egyptian army chief Abdel-Fatah El-Sisi announced a transitional 'road-map' that would entail amending the suspended 2012 constitution, and holding parliamentary and presidential elections within a year.
