  •  Salafists bury shiv in President Morsi's back (2+ / 0-)

    The Nour Party, often considered informal ideological allies of the Muslim Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party, has declared it wants a transitional government and snap elections to be held. Story here.

    Deciding to remain neutral, the Salafist Call and Nour Party refrained from joining the 30 June protests demanding the president’s dismissal, and also the counter rallies supporting Morsi’s “legitimacy.”

    But after two days of massive protests against Morsi, they endorsed the opposition’s main demand (early presidential elections), and also called for a government of technocrats and a committee for constitutional amendments.

    According to the statement, an “unbiased” government of technocrats should be formed to work on solving the problems of the Egyptian people and monitor parliamentary elections.
