Egypt’s interim president Adly Mansour has described the Muslim Brotherhood members as part of the Egyptian fabric.
“They are part of this nation and are invited to integrate to continue the building of this country,” he said in press statements.
Mansour earlier Thursday took the oath as interim president of Egypt under a roadmap for the future announced by the powerful army yesterday.
Defense Minister Abdel Fatah El Sisi announced Wednesday that the Constitutional Court head will serve as interim president until early presidential elections are held.
He added that a roadmap for the future of Egypt also included temporarily suspending the constitution, forming a coalition government of technocrats and holding early presidential elections.
Mansour’s remarks came amid a security crackdown on the leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood and its Freedom and Justice Party (FJP).
