    here, which says the the " Council of the Wise" , are meeting ( or met) with Suleiman today.

    CAIRO, Feb 4 (Reuters) - Egypt's vice president will meet a group of prominent independent figures on Saturday promoting a solution to the country's crisis in which he would assume the president's powers for an interim period, one of the group said.

    Diaa Rashwan told Reuters he and others had been invited to see Vice President Omar Suleiman to discuss solutions to the crisis based on an article of the constitution that would allow President Hosni Mubarak to hand his powers to his deputy.

    Mubarak would stay on in a symbolic position under the proposal being promoted by Rashwan and a group of Egyptians calling itself the "The Council of Wise Men".

    Yeah, so this is not what we're hearing that the opposition groups want.
