Muslim Brotherhood Rejects Mansour's Transition Plan

Tuesday, 09 July 2013 09:33 AM EDT

CAIRO — A senior member of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood has rejected the timetable announced by the country's interim president for amending the country's constitution and setting new presidential elections.

Essam el-Erian said Tuesday on his official Facebook page that the transition plan will take the country back to "square one" and vows that the Brotherhood will not drop its push to reinstate deposed President Mohammed Morsi, who was a longtime member of the group.

Interim President Adly Mansour issued the timetable for the transition process late Monday.

Under the plan, he would create two panels to amend the constitution. Those changes would be put to a referendum within about 4½ months, followed by parliamentary and presidential elections in early 2014.
