Egypt interim PM says won’t rule out Brotherhood participation in govt


CAIRO: Egypt’s interim Prime Minister Hazem al-Beblawi has said that he does not rule out the participation of Muslim Brotherhood in the new government.

“I do not look at political association… If someone is named from (the Brotherhood’s) Freedom and Justice Party, if he is qualified for the post,” he may be considered, Beblawi said on Thursday.

“I am taking two criteria for the next government. Efficiency and credibility,” said Beblawi, who was appointed as interim premier on July 9.

On Wednesday, Muslim Brotherhood’s political wing, Freedom and Justice Party, rejected offers by Beblawi to join the interim government.

“We reject all that comes from this coup,” said Tareq al-Morsi, the spokesman for the Muslim Brotherhood.

The group said that it will not hold talks with the interim government until ousted President Mohamed Morsi is reinstated.
