Egypt Names New Prime Minister with Salafist Agreement

Egypt’s interim government has named economist Hazem el-Beblawi as the prime minister, the post that was supposed to taken over by Mohamed ElBaradei until Salafist Muslims vehemently objected because of his liberal and secular views.

The Salafist Al Nour party agreed to the appointment of el-Beblawi, and the interim regime also appointed ElBaradei as vice president.

The prime minister will play an important part in a new constitution, which Egypt has unsuccessfully tried to write since the ouster of Hosni Mubarak. One of the most sensitive items in the constitution will be the character of Egypt, which Al Nour wants to be Islamic.

One Response to “Egypt Names New Prime Minister with Salafist Agreement”

  1. Ari Rusila says:

    Sure it was the military that removed Morsi, however t it was the masses who brought about the overthrow of Morsi.The military has so far essentially fulfilled all of Tamarod's demands – one could say peoples will. Now it is crucial moment to build democracy in Egypt, where military continues crack down on the Muslim Brotherhood. In my opinion this should be stopped as the sustainable outcome is only possible if opposition can avoid ”winner takes all” approach. So from my perspective both a functional interim cabinet and an effective constitutional committee must include participation of the Muslim Brotherhood and their allies, which in turn means refraining from any politically-motivated crackdown. Lack of consensus-building proved to be the first transition’s original sin. It should not become the second’s as well.
    P.S: More for example in my article: Morsi Out, Military In, Can Democracy Slip Too In Egypt ( http://arirusila.wordpress.com/2013/07/04/morsi-out-military-in-can-democrazy-slip-too-in-egypt/ ).
