Cairo - Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood is calling on the country's ruling
generals to sack the current military-appointed government, saying it
has failed to manage the deteriorating security and economic situation
in the country.
Brotherhood spokesperson Mahmoud Ghozlan says the
military should appoint a Brotherhood representative prime minister, who
would then form a new coalition government.
The Brotherhood controls nearly 50% of the seats in the new parliament.
said on Thursday a government backed by parliament would be more
empowered to handle challenging security and economic problems.
the past week, Egypt has been rattled by a deadly soccer riot that
sparked days of clashes between protesters and the police.
At least 89 people have been killed since the violence began last week.
