The Muslim Brotherhood movement of Egypt's ousted president Mohamed Morsi will spurn an offer to join a new interim government, a spokesman for the Islamist group said on Wednesday.
"We do not deal with putchists. We reject all that comes from this coup," said Tareq El-Morsi, amid reports the movement is to be offered positions in the transitional cabinet.
The reaction of the Muslim Brotherhood comes after hours of appointing prominent economist Hazem El-Beblawi as interim prime minister of Egypt on Tuesday. PM El-Beblawi has already offered the Muslim Brotherhood's posts in the interim government according to the statement of the presidency official spokesperson Ahmed El-Muslimani to MENA news agency late last Tuesday.
