Military figures are currently holding meetings with religious, political and youth figures on Wednesday afternoon.

In a short announcement, the military confirmed the meeting and stated it will release a statement immediately after the meetings.

Reports surfaced mid-Wednesday of a meeting between opposition leader Mohamed ElBaradei and Defence Minister Abdul Fatah Al-Sisi.

Founding member of Al-Dostour Party Maha Mekkawy confirmed the meeting, saying ElBaradei and three members of Tamarod campaign were invited to the meet with the defence minister. She qualified, however, that she has no further information on the meeting’s subject or contents, and no statements regarding it had yet been released.

On Tuesday, Al-Dostour Party Chairman ElBaradei was nominated by the Tamarod-backed June 30 Front and opposition bloc the National Salvation Front to serve as the representative of the opposition in talks with the government to solve the current situation.

After a long political impasse and escalating tensions, the military announced on Monday that it will implement a roadmap for the country if the presidency and the opposition cannot resolve their differences within 48 hours.
