Agreeing with the chancellor, former MB MP and lawyer Sobhi Saleh called on the youths to build the nation and ignore the former regime’s remnants of manipulating sectarian tensions to maintain control over the population and justify non-democratic politics. Stressing that although sedition may be unsettling we must not be intimidated since its incitement is precisely the kind of events that counterrevolutionary groups hope to exploit going forward.
