The Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) Secretary General Hussein Ibrahim announced on his Facebook page that the party refuses to participate in talks with interim president Adly Mansour.

FJP Spokesperson Mohamed Soudan said he received confirmation from Ibrahim that he had called for dialogue, despite earlier uncertainty from Soudan and the FJP Media Office if communication had taken place.

The overture, however, was refused, according to Ibrahim’s Facebook page, on the basis that FJP “does not acknowledge the military coup” and that “Mohamed Morsi is the legitimate president of Egypt.”
