Brotherhood initiative for solving Egypt crisis 'unrealistic', says NSF

World Bulletin/News Desk

The National Salvation Front (NSF) has rejected a proposal by the Muslim Brotherhood to reinstate ousted President Mohamed Morsi to implement reforms as a way to solve the current political crisis in Egypt.

"The Muslim Brotherhood proposal is rejected because it contains unrealistic demands," NSF member Ahmed Darrag told Anadolu Agency.

The MB has suggested reinstating Morsi to his office to "implement an initiative for reform in accordance with the constitution".

The group's initiative includes holding parliamentary election and amending the constitution, championing national reconciliation and endorsing a media code of ethics.

But Darrag opined that the initiative will be rejected by all political powers.

"What happened on June 30 was a popular revolution backed by the army," he insisted.

The Popular Current, led by former presidential candidate Hamden Sabahi, said the army-backed roadmap is on track.

"We support the idea of national reconciliation provided that transitional justice is achieved and whoever incited violence or participated in usurping public funds and corruption is brought to justice," it said in a statement.

Morsi, Egypt's first democratically elected president, was ousted by the army on July 3 following mass protests against his regime.

The military also suspended the constitution and installed Adly Mansour, the head of the constitutional court, as interim president.

Morsi supporters have since been organizing mass demonstrations and sit-ins nationwide to defend his democratic legitimacy and demand his reinstatement.
