FJP says has not met with political groups over new Cabinet
The Muslim Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party has denied reports that it is consulting with political groups about the formation of a new Cabinet.
The party’s deputy chairman, Essam al-Erian, said in a statement Tuesday that forming a new Cabinet would be the responsibility of the country’s new president alone. He also denied that the party made any statements pertaining to the next president and to whom he should deliver his presidential oath.
Erian urged media outlets to ensure accuracy and objectivity in reporting.
The FJP, which held a plurality in the People’s Assembly before it was dissolved through a court verdict last week, has pressed over the past months for the formation of a coalition government under its leadership to replace the current Cabinet, headed by Prime Minister Kamal al-Ganzouri.
Its attempts were met with persistence by the ruling military council to maintain the current Cabinet until the end of the transitional period, which the military set for late June.
FJP presidential candidate Mohamed Morsy, who leads the unofficial results of the vote, had assured political players that, if elected, he would form a coalition government representing various political trends.

The convenient marriage between Iran and the Arab left would have been unthinkable only a few years ago, given the traditional ideological paradoxes between patriarchal Persian Shiism, on the one hand, and leftist orthodoxy on the other.Indeed, a casual viewer of Hizbullah's Al-Manar television, or the Iranian-funded Al-Mayadin TV, these days would probably think that the two Shia propaganda
