25 November, 12:45

(ANSAmed) - CAIRO, NOVEMBER 25 - Egyptian presidential candidate Mohamed ElBaradei has joined the tens of thousands of protestors in Tahrir Square for the Friday prayer in honour of the victims of the clashes over the past few days. The huge demonstration called for today has been entitled the ''Friday of the Last Chance'' in reference to the last chance for a large demonstration before the parliamentary elections, which the military council said yesterday would be held as scheduled on Monday. While the square is getting ready for the latest show of force, the military council has not yet officially confirmed the news released yesterday by a number of Egyptian media sources, which said that the military had tasked former prime minister Kamal El Ganzouri with forming a national unity government. As soon as his name began to spread in the square yesterday evening, it was rejected due to his being a representative of the old regime and in any case too old. El Ganzouri is 78.
