As the military claim to have the majority at the sovereignty council and the opposition says it should the upper hand at this institution, a good offices group proposed to form a national security council for the army to enable them to main security and defend the country.

Shams al-Din Kabbashi, the military council spokesperson told a press conference at the Republican Palace Tuesday that the council rejected the proposal as it limits its role to the defence policy only.

While the defence council which will be chaired by the head of the military council also will include three civilians: the prime minister, foreign minister and finance minister.

The proposal of the mediation included a council of ministers and a transitional legislative council.
