The Muslim Brotherhood’s number one goal for Egypt is the restoration of democracy, a senior member of that party told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour on Monday.
“This country is the main concern of us now,” el-Erian said, speaking on the phone from Cairo.
Egypt’s public prosecutor has issued an arrest warrant for el-Erian, who is the deputy leader of the Freedom and Justice Party, the Brotherhood’s political wing.
Mohamed Morsy, the former president of Egypt, elected as the candidate of the Muslim Brotherhood, is still in custody and his whereabouts are unknown.
“We are continuing our revolutionary steps peacefully, [with] demonstrations all over the country,” el-Erian told Amanpour, who was reporting from London.
Members of Egypt’s interim government, at all levels, declined requests for an interview on Monday.
