Egypt’s interim president Adly Mansour has all upon the supporters of the military coup that ousted elected president Mohamed Morsi to unite or face the return of the Muslim Brotherhood.
Mohamed Morsi was removed from power when a coup led by army general Abdal-Fattah Al-Sisi took place following anti-government uprisings organized by Tamarod swept the country on June 30.
Morsi, who was the head of the Freedom and Justice Party the political wing of the Muslim Brotherhood, is still in custody facing a number of charges his supporters claim are politically motivated.
His replacement, coup-backed Adly Mansour, warned that divisions between the January 25 movement, that ousted former dictator Hosni Mubarak in 2011, and the June 30 movement, could pave the way for the Muslim Brotherhood to make a comeback.
According to the Middle-East Monitor, when speaking to journalists, artists, actors and athletes, Mansour said "If we do not wake up, they [the Brotherhood] will come to the parliament in large numbers," he said. "They are able to organize and mobilize people."
He further went on to say that he was not planning to run for the role of permanent president himself, saying, "Egypt has many problems and it does not need a normal person; the role needs a person who recognizes the meaning of Egypt, the size of its problems and the complication of the international environment."Last Mod: 23 Aralık 2013, 17:10
