The Egyptian Supreme Council of Armed Forces said it will not replace the legitimacy of the government, in a televised statement on Friday after Hosni Mubarak stepped down from presidency.

"We realized the seriousness of the present situation, we are keeping on studying all the necessary procedures and steps to achieve people's demands and we will declare a statement of the proposed plans," the statement said.

"We present our utmost appreciation of Mubarak who preferred the interest of his people than his own, we expressed thankfulness for all his efforts in serving our nation," it added.

The statement was the third one released by the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces led by Hussein Tantawi commander in chief of the Armed Forces and minister of defense.
