Egypt's judiciary gave President Mohamed Mursi 36 hours to voluntarily withdraw yesterday's decision to reinstate parliament and apologize to the nation and its judicial system.
"If this does not happen, we will announce measures in response", head of the Judges Club, Ahmed al-Zend, said, expressing hopes for everybody to return to their senses.
He added that Egypt's judiciary will not enforce any law passed by the revived People's Assembly, explaining that laws passed by the assembly will be considered illegitimate.
Sameh Ashour, head of the Lawyers Syndicate, said that the decision to restore parliament is a political one, adding that no authority has the right to make such a decision.
Ashour insisted that Egypt who toppled a president and his National Democratic Party will not tolerate a new president or political party who aims to acquire absolute power.
Representative of the Constitutional Court, Abdel Aziz Suleiman, said that the president lost his legitimacy when he degraded the constitutional oath by considering a court decision non-existent, not just invalid.
Suleiman added that the president performed a miracle when he revived the deceased parliament, pointing out that he does not possess the authority to defy the country's highest court.
