The Muslim Brotherhood is calling for a protest on Wednesday at the presidential palace in support of Mohamed Morsy and “legitimacy,” in a direct challenge to opposition forces demonstrating against the president there.
CAIRO — A statement published by Egypt’s newly formed National Salvation Front on Dec. 2 described President Mohammed Morsi’s call for a constitutional referendumas “irresponsible” and accused him of “reneging on his oath not to schedule it before reaching a broad state of national consensus over the constitution.”
“We would simply urge that protesters express their views peacefully, and that they be given the environment, if you will, to protest peacefully,” US State Department spokesperson Mark Toner said, in an oblique reference to the government and security forces.
