He said the committee is now waiting for instructions from the party, "so that we can mobilize thousands in all provinces to be at the airport in Cairo. "


Meanwhile, Addustor newspaper reported that the Secretariat of the National Democratic Party had issued instructions to all the senior officials not to travel abroad until Mubarak's return. The Parliament Speaker, Dr. Sorour, has already delayed his trip to Jordan on Thursday as the head of the Egyptian parliamentary delegation participating in the Euro-Mediterranean Parliamentary Conference.
