Crackdown on Muslim Brotherhood continues in Egypt


Description:

Egypt's General Prosecutor has ordered the arrest of the Muslim Brotherhood's Supreme Guide, Mohamed Badie alongside with 12 senior officials from the movement. Badie alongside with his deputy Mahmoud Ezzat and other Muslim Brotherhood leaders are accused of instigating violence among their followers in the lead-up to Monday's deadly events in Cairo where over 80 supporters of ousted president Mohamed Morsi were killed during clashes with the army. Interim Prime Minister Hazem El-Beblawi has said that he is currently in engaged in consultations with other officials to form a consensus government. Beblawi added that positions will be offered to the Muslim Brotherhood, in what could be seen as a reconciliation attempt. But for its part, the Muslim Brotherhood announced that it will not be taking part in any government formations. The movement members underlined that any talk of national reconciliation under the current circumstances is irrelevant. The Muslim Brotherhood and other pro- Morsi groups regard the army's recent actions in which the president was toppled a well planned conspiracy and a coup that they say they will never accept. Mors's supporters have promised to continue sit-in protests and till Morsi is reinstated in his post. Egypt's military-backed President Adly Mansour, the army and various political groups are trying to go ahead with a political roadmap outlined in a constitutional declaration which sets a span of 6 months as Egypt's transitional period. During the period, parliamentary and presidential elections will be held, and amendments to the constitution will be made and then put forward to a referendum. Morsi's supporters are not the only people in Egypt who have expressed dismay with the proposed plan. The National Salvation Front, the main secular bloc has also said that it rejects the plan for what they described as 'lacking significant clauses'. In essence, Tamroud the Youth movement which played a large role in organizing the June 30th protests against Morsi said that the constitutional declaration gave too many powers to the interim president specifically the right to issues laws. The interim government is expected to find it difficult to bring together the various political factions in Egypt over national reconciliation and that's not all. In addition to tackling the tricky political situation, the interim government will soon have to address the economic problems and others issues the nation is grappling with.
