The Muslim Brotherhood is demanding that Egypt's ruling military generals give up their power and appoint a Brotherhood member as the new prime minister to form a new government, CBN News reports. Muslim Brotherhood spokesman Mahmoud Ghozlan said the interim military government had failed to manage Egypt's deterioriating security and economic situation. "If there is a government in place that is really backed by the choice of the people, it will act without regard for any pressure from anyone," he said. "It will seek to reassure the people and provide it with security." The extremist Islamic party controls 50 percent of the seats in the newly elected parliament.
