Secretary General of Muslim Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) Hussein Ibrahim said Wednesday they did not recognize the interim government, which he said took its orders from the military.

"We do not recognize the interim government which is the extension of the military and we describe all the people who are in charge without the popular vote as 'null and void,'" Ibrahim told supporters of the deposed president, Mohammed Morsi, in Raba'a al-Adawiya Square, where his loyalists have been staging regular protests and sit-ins since Morsi's ouster on July 3.

"Egyptians made their decision by voting and they will exercise this decision. Egypt's first elected President Morsi will be reinstated," he said vowing that pro-Morsi protests will continue.

Ibrahim also criticized the interim Prime Minister Hazem el-Beblawi, who was sworn in Tuesday, saying he proved "unsuccessful" during in office as the finance minister.
