“Different people want different things, some want early presidential elections, other want first to form a presidential council and other first want to focus on writing a new constitution”.

Other members of Tamarod are also travelling throughout Egypt, including visits to Shebin El-Koum in Menufiya, Port Said, Kafr El-Zayat and Upper Egypt to meet with families and try to come up with a “written agreement for what everyone wants for the period after Morsi,” said Wahba.

Hamam said that there will be “marches to pave the way for 30 June.”

Tamarod, a petition campgain seeking to withdraw confidence in President Mohamed Morsi and calling for early elections, continues to collect signatures.
