CAIRO - The ruling army council on Sunday defended its handling of Egypt's political transition against withering attacks on the army-backed government by the Islamist-dominated parliament.

The Muslim Brotherhood, whose Freedom and Justice Party has the biggest bloc in parliament, described Prime Minister Kamal al-Ganzouri's cabinet as a failure and criticized the army for continuing to support it, in a statement on Saturday.

The military took over more than a year ago after a popular uprising ended President Hosni Mubarak's 30-year rule.

Parliament began steps this month to withdraw confidence from the government, although power to form any new cabinet lies with the army council that has said it will hand power to civilians by July 1 after a new president takes office.
