"We consider this initiative positive and we await the next concrete steps. As for our plan for a rally tomorrow, the plan stands and it will be organised and orderly," said Mohammed al-Saadi, undersecretary of the Islamist Islah party.

"This is a peaceful struggle through which the people can make their voices heard and express their aspirations," he added.
