Egypt Breaking News: Egypt Factions Work on Compromise on Premier Post
Egyptian officials say a liberal economist has emerged as a strong candidate for prime minister after hours of negotiations between secular and liberal factions and ultraconservative Islamist. Feuding erupted within Egypt's new leadership as secular and liberal factions wrangled with ultraconservative Islamists who rejected their choice for prime minister, stalling the formation of a new government after the military's ouster of President Mohammed Morsi. Top current and former diplomats for the United States and Egypt resisted Sunday characterizations that the ousting of democratically elected former Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi was a military coup, which would violate U.S. foreign policy to provide further financial assistance to the fledgling government.
