Egypt’s opposition won’t discuss reconciliation

Protests planned for anniversary of Morsi’s ascent

CAIRO — Egypt’s largest opposition group rejected calls by the president for national reconciliation talks Tuesday as “too late” as pro and anti- government protesters briefly clashed ahead of plans for a mass rally calling for his ouster later this month.

Critics accuse President Mohammed Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood party of trying to monopolize power and making unilateral decisions that have further polarized society as turmoil persists after the 2011 ouster of Hosni Mubarak. The Brotherhood charges the opposition with trying to unseat Morsi through violence instead of through the ballot box, maintaining that their detractors lack grass-roots support.
