CAIRO, Jan. 30 (Xinhua) -- Egypt's main opposition bloc the National Salvation Front (NSF) and Salafist al-Nour Party agreed Wednesday on the necessity of forming a coalition government to run the country's upcoming parliamentary election.
"We also agreed on denouncement of violence and the right of peaceful demonstration," NSF member and leader of al-Wafd Party Sayyed al-Badawi told reporters at a press conference after a meeting with al-Nour Party leaders.
"All political factions should participate in the current stage, as one faction alone cannot hold the whole responsibility," said head al-Nour Party Younis Makhyoun, referring to the Muslim Brotherhood group, which is accused of attempting to dominate power.
"We don't mean by this initiative of dialogue with the opposition to unite against any faction, but the initiative is just based on our belief in the necessity of national reconciliation in the current stage," Makhyoun added, stressing that all political factions should unite to stop the ongoing tension for the common good.
Makhyoun noted that al-Nour Party would extend talks to other parties and affirmed that all political parties should take part in the state's responsibility.
"The nation is not restricted to one faction," he said.
Al-Badawi expressed appreciation over al-Nour Party's initiative for dialogue, noting that the NSF welcomed dialogue when its agenda conformed with the front's principles, and stressing that dialogue was the only solution to the country's ongoing crisis.
Earlier Wednesday, NSF leading member Mohamed ElBaradei called for immediate talks with Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi to resolve the current turmoil.
"I call for an immediate meeting with the president, the ministers of defense and interior affairs, the ruling party (the Muslim Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party) and the Salafist leaders along with the NSF to take necessary actions to end violence and start an earnest dialogue," ElBaradei stated on his Twitter account.
