A number of Egyptian opposition groups have agreed to form "a national front" to deal with the complicated situation there, one of Egypt's oldest parties, Wafd, announced on Tuesday.

Besides President Hosmi Mubarak's resignation, the united opposition will demand considerable changes to the country's constitution and a new government.

In a statement, Wafd said that president Mubarak "has lost legitimacy", Al Jazeera reports.

Also on Tuesday, the Muslim Brotherhood, an officially banned but tolerated movement, said it will not negotiate with president Mubarak or his government.

Meanwhile, ore than one million people are estimated to have gathered Tuesday in downtown Cairo in what has become the largest protest rally yet against the regime of Egypt's President .
