Egypt's nationwide anti-government protests continued for the third consecutive day on Thursday with protestors calling for a one-million-march after Friday prayers.

Safwat el-Sherif, Secretary General of Egypt's ruling National Democratic Party (NDP) affirmed that the party is following the government's plan to handle crisis in a press conference on Thursday afternoon.

He added that the party respects youth commitment to peaceful expression over the past period, rejecting any threat to the national security. "Egypt is a country which always faces those who try to destabilize its national unity and security," said El- Sherif.

He further said that Egypt is fully aware of the elements that try to destroy the freedom and democracy in Egypt with igniting anarchy and spreading rumors.

The secretary general of NDP added that the party is confident to start dialogue with the youth. However, he added democracy has its regulations and that the minority cannot force its own will on the majority.
