Egypt Nour Party: We accept ex-FinMin as interim PM

CAIRO - Egypt's Nour Party, the country's second-biggest Islamist movement after the Muslim Brotherhood, said on Tuesday it would accept the choice of former finance minister Samir Radwan as interim prime minister.

Nour Party spokesman Nader Bakkar told Reuters the party would accept Radwan because he met the party's criteria for an interim prime minister. Political sources said on Monday that Radwan had emerged as the favourite for the post.

The military-backed transitional administration is keen to win Nour's support for a new government to show it is acceptable to Islamists after the army toppled the Brotherhood's Mohamed Morsi last week.
