Egypt's April 6 protest group, which helped topple Hosni Mubarak in 2011, spoke out on Wednesday against any attempt by army chief Abdel Fattah al-Sisi to seek the presidency, saying this would be divisive and destabilizing.April 6 at first backed Sisi's removal of Islamist President Mohammad Morsi in July, but, like some other secular groups, has since returned to its former stance opposing army-backed rule.The army's overthrow of Morsi, Egypt's first freely elected leader, sharply divided the most populous Arab nation between those who supported it and Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood.Morsi and other Brotherhood leaders were detained, along with thousands of supporters.
