CAIRO - The Muslim Brotherhood, Egypt's most organized Islamist group, said it would not accept any move to delay next week's parliamentary election after clashes between police and protesters demanding an end to military rule, the group said on its website.

"The Egyptian people and the Muslim Brotherhood with them do not accept any attempt to delay the upcoming election," it said before a staggered vote for parliament due to start on Nov. 28.

The government and army have said they would not delay the election, the first such vote since Hosni Mubarak was ousted.
