Head of the Muslim Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party, Mohamed Morsy, insisted that Egypt's newly-elected parliament must form a government that reflects popular demand.
"The public anticipates a government that represents the majority. A government which can be held accountable for shortcomings," Morsy insisted in his talk with Al-Ahram, adding that the "transitional government" excuse is no longer valid.
Morsy indicated that there is no room for debate with the Supreme Council of Armed Forces (SCAF) over the issue, and warned that they will be held accountable for corruption and violations if they do not agree to the parliament forming a "majority government".
According to the constitution, the parliament does not have the authority to form a government; that is the responsibility of the SCAF who assumed presidential power when Mubarak was deposed.
