AS SUPPORTERS OF OUSTED EGYPTIAN PRESIDENT MOHAMMED MORSI TOOK TO THE STREETS AGAIN IN CAIRO, TUESDAY, THE MILITARY-BACKED INTERIM PRESIDENT NAMED A NEW PRIME MINISTER AND VICE PRESIDENT, ENDING DAYS OF POLITICAL STALEMATE OVER THE TOP POSTS.

PROMINENT ECONOMIST HAZEM EL-BEBLAWI WAS APPOINTED PRIME MINISTER... AND PRO-DEMOCRACY LEADER MOHAMED ELBARADEI, VICE PRESIDENT.

ELBARADEI WAS ON THE VERGE OF BEING NAMED PRIME MINISTER LAST WEEK BUT WAS BLOCKED BY AN ISLAMIST PARTY INVOLVED IN THE PROCESS.

THE ANNOUNCEMENTS COME A DAY AFTER THE INTERIM LEADERSHIP LAID OUT A FAST-TRACK TIMETABLE TO ELECT A NEW PRESIDENT AND PARLIAMENT BY EARLY NEXT YEAR.

But EGYPT'S MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD quickly REJECTED THE PLAN, INSISTING MORSI WAS REMOVED BY A COUP.

"We don't accept this military coup and its consequences. We should not comment on this constitution declaration as it is produced by an illegitimate regime."

THE WHITE HOUSE CALLED EGYPT'S PLAN FOR ELECTIONS "A POSITIVE SIGN," AND URGED ALL PARTIES TO PARTICIPATE IN THE PROCESS.

{SOT: Jay Carney, White House Spokesman}

"Egypt will only be able to emerge from this crisis if its people come together to find a non-violent and inclusive path forward."

MEANWHILE, AN EGYPTIAN SECURITY OFFICIAL SAYS 650 PEOPLE - MOSTLY BACKERS OF THE OUSTED PRESIDENT - HAVE BEEN DETAINED FOR ALLEGEDLY TRYING TO STORM THE REPUBLICAN GUARD HEADQUARTERS MONDAY.

THE MILITARY CLAIMS THAT INCIDENT SPARKED THE VIOLENCE THAT LEFT MORE THAN 50 PRO-MORSI PROTESTERS DEAD AND FUELED CONCERNS ABOUT A CIVIL WAR.
