Prominent member of the Muslim Brotherhood, Essam al-Erian, says that President Mohamed Mursi, in the absence of parliament, will only use the power of legislation when he really has to.
Before using legislative power, Mursi will consult political forces, Erian posted on Twitter on Wednesday.
The former member of the dissolved parliament denounced people's rejection to Mursi's decision to grant himself the power of legislation.
He criticized the public for letting the army rule for years, granting it ultimate power, but denying the elected president his legitimate constitutional rights during the transitional phase.
Mursi issued a decree on Sunday annulling the military council's constitutional amendments and assuming legislative power.
