Douglas Alexander MP, Labour's Shadow Foreign Secretary, welcoming the action taken by the Egyptian Military said:

"These actions from the Egyptian Military are welcome steps on the road to the changes required to allow a broader based, civilian led democratic Government to emerge.

"However many questions still remain and further actions will be required to take forward the vital task of building and strengthening a series of institutions such as diverse political parties, a free press and an independent judiciary."
