Egypt: Tahtawi - Morsi Wants to Create Stable Country

Chief of the Egyptian presidential cabinet Refaa el-Tahtawi stressed President Mohamed Morsi wants to have a stable Egypt, based on the rule of law and democracy.

Egyptian citizens suffer in many walks of life, which necessitates a lasting constitution and an independent parliament, Tahtawi told Al Arabiya channel Thursday 29/11/2012. He said the president sought to precede the Supreme Constitutional Court's ruling on dissolving the Constituent Assembly and the Shura Council.

"All Egyptians are partners and have the right to express themselves," said Tahtawi.

He went on to say that Tahrir Square was left to different political powers last Friday and the Muslim Brotherhood (MB)'s million-man march was delayed to avert clashes.

The MB has the right to demonstrate in the same square next Saturday, Tahtawi said.
