Egypt official: Muslim Brotherhood can run in elections

Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood movement can take part in new elections, a presidential spokesman said on Saturday.
The military ousted elected Islamist President Mohamed Morsi on Wednesday, sparking widespread protests among his Brotherhood followers. The military says it has a political roadmap to guide the country to new elections, but has yet to set a date."We extend our hand to everyone, everyone is a part of this nation," the spokesman told reporters. "The Muslim Brotherhood has plenty of opportunities to run for all elections including the coming presidential elections or the ones to follow."
