The Muslim Brotherhood demanded Thursday that Egypt's ruling generals give up their power over the current government.

The group said the military government has failed to manage the deteriorating security and economic situation in the country.

"We call on the military council to sack this government that has failed to handle this big event and to form another government," Brotherhood spokesman Mahmoud Ghozlan said.

"If there is a government in place that is really backed by the choice of the people, it will act without regard for any pressure from anyone. It will seek to reassure the people and provide it with security," he added.

The Muslim Brotherhood wants the military to appoint a Brotherhood member as the new prime minister so that person can form a new coalition government.

The Islamist party controls 50 percent of the seats in the newly elected parliament.

Meanwhile, Egypt's relations with the United States remain tense as the north African country continues holds 19 Americans on charges of trying to create unrest.
