Egyptian Ambassador: Muslim Brotherhood Should 'Join The Process'

ABC NEWS: Egypt’s ambassador to the U.S. says the Muslim Brotherhood should “join the process” and accept deposed president Mohamed Morsi’s ouster.A member of the Muslim Brotherhood political party in Egypt, Morsi was democratically elected last June only to see a swell of popular opposition one year later. Last week, the Egyptian military removed Morsi from power and installed an interim president, Adly Mansour.Tawfik was appointed by Morsi to his current post but now supports the movement against Morsi.The ambassador said on “This Week” that Morsi was deposed because he did not act in the interest of all Egyptians – the same criticism leveled by protesters who say Morsi pursued a religious agenda at the expense of Egypt’s economy.Those elections will happen “as quickly as we can put it together,” Tawfik said.
