President Mohamed Mursi will convene senior judges on Sunday to look into ending a rift over the new judicial authority law.
The High Constitutional Court, Cassation Court, Appeals Court, State Lawsuits Authority, military judiciary and administrative prosecution will all join today's discussion with the president.
Egyptian judges and opposition figures had both criticized the new draft law for the judiciary for reducing the retirement age from 70 to 60 years old.
They said it targeted senior judges who strove to contain the power of the Islamist government by annulling a parliamentary election and acquitting aides of toppled leader Hosni Mubarak.
The judges also argued that the law's purpose is for the Muslim Brotherhood, from which Mursi hails, to gain a tighter grip on the judicial authority.
The Islamist-led Shura Council (upper house of parliament), which temporarily holds legislative powers, had agreed in principle on the new amendments to the judicial authority law.
