A coalition of Egyptian opposition groups told the government that they would not begin talks with the army on a transition to democracy until President Hosni Mubarak resigns, Al-Jazeera reported on Tuesday.

"Our first demand is that Mubarak goes. Only after that can dialogue start with the military establishment on the details of a peaceful transition of power," said Mohammed al-Beltagi, a former member of parliament from the Muslim Brotherhood.

Beltagi that the opposition was operating under the name, the National Committee for Following up the People's Demands, made up of the Muslim Brotherhood, the National Association for Change headed by Mohamed El Baradei, political parties and prominent figures including Coptic Christians.
