fter declaring its candidate Mohamed Morsi the winner in Egypt's presidential run-off vote, the Muslim Brotherhood vowed to challenge Egypt's ruling generals in a "life or death struggle" over the country's future. On Sunday, the military council claimed control over all laws, the national budget, final say over any declaration of war, and immunity from all oversight. The military junta also named all 100 representatives of a commission to write a permanent constitution. A media coordinator for the Morsi campaign delivered a stern message to military leaders, saying, "It's very clear that Scaf [the Supreme Council of Armed Forces] and other institutions of the state are determined to stand in the way of what we're trying to achieve, and we won't accept this anymore. Egypt will not go back to the old regime through any means, legal or illegal."
