Muslim Brotherhood Seeks Reconciliation in Egypt


The Muslim Brotherhood has opened contacts with the provisional Egyptian government in an attempt at reconciliation, according to a Thursday report by Al-Ahram.

The semi-official Cairo newspaper cited Prime Minister Hazem Beblawi as saying he's in no hurry to give the group legitimacy. He explained,  "The political process in Egypt does not require the return of the Muslim Brotherhood into politics." He added, "It would not be wise to make hasty decisions in stormy times. It will be good to keep an eye on the Muslim Brotherhood and its Freedom and Justice Party for a while to figure out what way they choose to go."
