Egypt’s Military Warns Of Political Maneuvering

Pro-Morsi Supporters Killed In Shooting Incident Outside Presidential Guard Barracks

CAIRO (AP) — Egypt’s army chief says the military will not accept political “maneuvering,” in thinly veiled warning to the only Islamist party that sided with the army’s removal of President Mohammed Morsi but has since had frictions with other factions over forming a new leadership.

Defense Minister Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi said Tuesday in a statement carried by state TV that “the future of the nation is too important and sacred for maneuvers or hindrance, whatever the justifications.”

The statement appears to refer to days of political stalemate after an ultraconservative party, Al-Nour, objected to two nominees for prime minister and outright blocked one of them, pro-reform leader Mohamed ElBaradei.

El-Sissi’s statement comes shortly after a prominent economist Hazem el-Beblawi was named prime minister.
