CAIRO: Egypt's Tamarod campaign which launched the protests that prompted the ouster of president Mohamed Morsi on Tuesday slammed the country's interim charter as "dictatorial."

"It is impossible to accept the (constitutional declaration -- C.D.) because it founds a new dictatorship. We will hand over to the (military-installed caretaker) president an amendment to the C.D," the group said on its official Twitter account.
