LA Mideast Egypt.JPEG-07836.jpgEgyptian opposition groups chose leading dissident Mohamed ElBaradei to represent them in negotiations on the country’s future, after the army said it would intervene with a roadmap if political forces do not resolve the crisis by Wednesday.

The June 30 Front, which includes various groups including Tamarod – a grassroots campaign behind Sunday’s record protests against Islamist President Mohamed Morsi – said it had delegated ElBaradei “to be the voice” of the opposition.

The Front “entrusts ElBaradei with the responsibility to ensure the execution of the Egyptian people’s demands and to draft a scenario that aims at the complete implementation of the roadmap for the political transition,” it said in an English-language statement.
