Egypt’s Brotherhood Rejects Vote

    CAIRO, EGYPT - JULY 08:  Women attend a pro Mohamed Morsi rally near where over 50 were purported to have been killed by members of the Egyptian military and police in early morning clashes on July 8, 2013 in Cairo, Egypt. The military, which took over control of the country from Muslim Brotherhood leader Morsi last week, has denied that they opened fire on the protesters and claim the shootings resulted after they came under attack from members of the Muslim Brotherhood. Egypt continues to be in a state of political paralysis following the ousting of Morsi by the military.

    Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood on Tuesday rejected the interim president’s timetable for elections, saying that a vote next year would bring the country “back to square one.” Meanwhile, opposition leader Mohamed ElBaradei has reportedly been named prime minister. This is all one day after 51 of ousted President Mohamed Morsi’s supporters were killed when the Egyptian Armed Forces allegedly opened fire on morning prayers, although the army insisted it was responding to an armed altercation. Interim President Adly Mansour on Monday called for a panel to be formed within 15 days to review the Constitution, constitutional amendments to be finalized within four months, parliamentary elections to be held in early 2014, and finally, presidential elections in about a year. Morsi, the country’s first democratically elected president, still has supporters within the Muslim Brotherhood, his political party.
