CAIRO - Egypt has a plan and timetable for the peaceful transfer of power, the vice president said on Tuesday, adding that the government will not pursue protesters who have been demanding President Hosni Mubarak step down now.

"The president welcomed the national consensus, confirming that we are putting our feet on the right path to getting out of the current crisis," Vice President Omar Suleiman said after a briefing with the president on the national dialogue meeting.

"A clear road map has been put in place with a set timetable to realise the peaceful and organised transfer of power," he said in comments broadcast on state television.
