CAIRO —

A spokesman for Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood says the group will reject any offer to join an interim government to replace the administration of ousted President Mohammed Morsi.

Newly appointed Prime Minister Hazem el-Beblawi is to begin forming a Cabinet on Wednesday, and has said he will offer the Brotherhood - which helped propel Morsi to the presidency - posts in a new government.

A Brotherhood spokesman dismissed any talk of joining a military-backed administration, and said talk of national reconciliation is "irrelevant." He spoke on condition of anonymity because of concerns for his security.

Morsi was deposed on July 3 after four days of massive protests demanding he step down, prompting the military to step in and oust him.
