President Mohamed Mursi stated on Thursday he will not put the draft constitution to referendum unless he sees a consensus.
Egypt will not have a constitution that represents only one spectrum, Mursi emphasized.
The constituent assembly, Egypt's constitution-drafting body, announced last Wednesday that the draft constitution is ready.
The assembly put the draft to societal discussions, calling on everyone to express their opinions on the draft.
During his speech on Thursday at the 100th anniversary of the Lawyers' Syndicate, Mursi stated that it is his responsibility to present the constitution to the public with utmost freedom.
"If the people reject it, we will repeat the process," Mursi added.
Mursi stated that there are four key words that were agreed upon in all national dialogues and documents, including al-Azhar document, explain that Egypt should be a modern, democratic, constitutional and civil state.
The president also called for reducing disputes, adding that "no one will pass something we do not agree on."
