CAIRO — The London-based Gulf Dialogue Forum said intense contacts are under way among Saudi activists and scholars to form a political party in the oil-rich absolute monarchy.

The online forum said Tuesday the National Saudi Party advocates establishing a civil democratic government because of the recent turmoil in Tunisia and Egypt.

Last week, Sheik Mohammed bin Ghanim al-Qahtani and nine university teachers, political activists and businessmen said they formed a party of their own, the Umma Islamic Party.
