Neither the Muslim Brotherhood nor the military appears willing to back down.

“From [the Brotherhood‘s] perspective, they have been cheated out of power and it is going to be nearly impossible to find the formula to incorporate them into a new process, which is why, I suspect, the military will try to destroy them,” said Eric Trager, an Egypt analyst at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy.

Egyptian media reported that Hazem el-Biblawi, who was appointed interim prime minister Tuesday, will offer the Muslim Brotherhood positions in his Cabinet.

Mr. El-Haddad, the Muslim Brotherhood spokesman, said his party would never accept such an offer.

“We would rather go back to our grass-roots social work,” he said. “[Mr. Morsi] should be reinstated. The votes have to be respected, not the military might.”
