Wafd Party rejects dialogue with Egyptian government

Following yesterday's violence, the liberal opposition Wafd Party rejected dialogue with Vice President Omar Suleiman, who had earlier called for dialogue with the opposition.

The Wafd party labeled as a “criminal act" Wednesday’s attack on Tahrir Square protesters.

Party spokesman Mohamed Mostafa Shordi said his party did not participate in a meeting that Suleiman called today.

Shordi added, in a statement to the press, that his party plans to protest against the attacks by not attending the meeting. He said that the attacks were incited by members of the ruling National Democratic Party.
Egyptian State Television said earlier today that Suleiman welcomed dialogue with opposition parties and other political groups in order find a solution to the current crisis.

Meanwhile, the protests’ myriad opposition groups said they refused to engage in talks until Mubarak left office.
