'15m call for Mohammed Morsi's ouster'

21 June 2013, 14:20

Cairo - Egyptian opposition activists said on Thursday that they had reached their target of 15 million signatures in a high-profile petition campaign calling for the ouster of President Mohammed Morsi.

The website of the Tamarod, or Rebellion, campaign quoted spokesperson Mahmoud Badr as announcing the figure officially ahead of a planned 30 June sit-in at the presidential palace to call for immediate presidential elections.

The group aimed to beat the 13.2 million votes that brought Morsi of the powerful Muslim Brotherhood to victory in last June's presidential election.

Egypt is increasingly tense ahead of the planned June 30 demonstrations, which the country's main opposition forces have pledged to join.

The Muslim Brotherhood and hardline Islamist allies have called a major demonstration for Friday in support of the president, vowing that he will see out his four year term.
