Essam El-Erian's tweets spark controversy
Essam El-Erian, Freedom and Justice's vice chairman, caused many angry reactions today online when he tweeted that honoring former Prime Minister Kamal al-Ganzouri and appointing him as one of Morsy's advisers is a message that former politicians will not be excluded and that their expertise will be needed.
Activists called El-Erian a hypocrite and questioned his stances especially that the vice chairman announced in March that toppling Ganzouri's government is actually a popular demand that the Muslim Brotherhood won't let go of.
Twitter users have reported that El-Erian erased all the tweets where he was calling for toppling Ganzouri's cabinet.
El-Erian was also criticised for tweeting that Morsy's first 100 days plan that he will be held accountable of started on Friday, August 4. He was met by frustrated replies that said that Morsy's 100 days have started the moment he was announced as president of the republic.
Essam El Erian said: ''Facing Mubarak's men who ruined our lives won't stop, 100s of them will continue and that's why they have to be bought to justice.
The tweet that sparked controversy; Essam El Erian wrote: ''Honoring Ganzouri and using his expertise as an adviser is a message to all men from the past that Egypt needs their expertise and there is no chance for exclusion or revenge''
Journalists start exposing the FJP Vice Chairman when he said in March that Ikhwan's decision to topple Ganzouri's cabinet is a popular demand after the cabinet has failed to manage all the issues they were supposed to deal with.
Activists report that Essam El Erian has erased the tweets where the FJP were against Ganzouri and his cabinet.
Essam El Erian writes on Twitter that Morsy's 100 hundred days have started on Friday, August 3. Activist Wael Ghonim corrects him and tells him that the 100 days started the moment Morsy was announced president.
One of the journalists wondered sarcastically: ''Why doesn't Morsy release Mubarak and appoint him to be his vice president so we ensure the National Democratic Party( NDP) that there is no such thing as exclusion of expertise? ''
