Egypt official says no changes to transition plan

Cairo: The spokesman for Egypt`s interim president says not a "single step" will be changed in the military-backed political road map announced when the army ousted the nation`s Islamist leader a month ago.
Ahmed al-Muslemani`s statement today appeared designed to debunk speculation that a series of recent visits by Western and Arab diplomats to Cairo are likely to persuade Egypt`s interim government to offer any substantive concessions to supporters of deposed President Mohammed Morsi in return for the end to their main sit-in protests.
The road map calls for amending or replacing an Islamist-backed constitution adopted in 2012. It also envisages parliamentary and presidential elections early in 2014. Al-Muslemani also ruled out holding a referendum on the road map.
