Egypt’s Government Faces Vote of No Confidence, Lawmaker Says

March 29, 2012

Egypt’s parliament will probably press ahead with plans for a vote of no confidence in the interim military-appointed government, said Hussein Ibrahim, an official with the Islamist party the Mulsim Brotherhood.

Government officials have repeatedly argued that only the ruling military council can dismiss the government.

“The military council should dismiss the government when it finds that it doesn’t want to resign, and that parliament has refused to give it a vote of confidence,” Ibrahim told reporters in Cairo.

The FJP, the political arm of the Muslim Brotherhood, rejected proposals by Prime Minister Kamal el-Ganzouri, saying they failed to address the country’s challenges facing the country following the ouster of former President Hosni Mubarak last year.
