Egyptian opposition says it will not hold talks with Morsi

Egypt's main opposition bloc said on Monday it would not hold talks with the Islamist president Mohamed Morsi, hours after the army gave feuding politicians 48 hours to resolve a national crisis or face an imposed solution.

 

"We are not going to talk to Morsi because we don't see him as legitimate any more," said Khaled Dawoud, spokesman for the National Salvation Front, a group of liberal and leftist politicians. "Our demands...are mainly that President Morsi has to resign and that we will need a strong government and a temporary president." he said. (Reuters)
