Won`t be another dictator: Egyptian President Mursi

Mursi issued a statement stressing that the power seizure was only ‘temporary’ and calling for political dialogue.



London: Egypt’s democratically elected President Mohammed Mursi has reportedly insisted he would not be another dictator as he tried to calm violent opposition protesting a decree that grants him sweeping powers.

Mursi issued a statement stressing that the power seizure was only ‘temporary’ and calling for political dialogue.

He also agreed to meet Egypt’s judges on Monday to negotiate a solution to the crisis, the Telegraph reports.

"The presidency reiterates the temporary nature of those measures, which are not intended to concentrate power,” the statement said.

"The presidency stresses its firm commitment to engage all political forces in the inclusive democratic dialogue to reach a common ground,” it added.

Mursi recently granted himself sweeping powers to ``protect the revolution`` and made himself immune to judicial oversight.

The country’s highest body of judges, the Supreme Judicial Council, called his decrees an ``unprecedented assault``.
