Declaration 1

 

The people want to run the country.

(The Capable Ones [al-qadirun])

 

We call on the Egyptian people to participate in running the country and help it arrive safely at its destination. Having agreed on the demands and goals, let us take another step forward by commissioning a civilian presidential council to run the country’s affairs in the current transitional phase. This council will be under the supervision of the Egyptian people and consist of five individuals, one from the armed forces and four civilians.

 

We thank the military council for improving its cooperation with and protection of the January 25 Revolution. However, we have decided to entrust the presidential council with the country’s civil affairs for the time being so that the military council can return to practicing its core mission—namely, to protect and secure the country’s borders.

 

Based upon this, we have decided to entrust…

 

1. Dr. Mohamad ElBaradei

2. Dr. ‘Abd al-Min’am Abu al-Futuh

3. Dr. Husam ‘Isa

4. Professor Nasir ‘Abd al-Hamid

5. (a fifth individual chosen by the Armed Forces)

 

…with running the country in the current transitional phase, under the supervision of the Egyptian people and using a timeline to achieve their demands.

 

The people want to run the country. The people want to run the country. The people want to run the country. The people want to run the country. The people want to run the country. The people want to run the country.
