'Pharaohic-power grabber' Morsi insists 'he won't be another dictator'

London, Mon, 26 Nov 2012 ANI

London, Nov 26 (ANI): Egypt's democratically elected President Mohammed Morsi has reportedly insisted he would not be another dictator as he tried to calm violent opposition protesting a decree that grants him sweeping powers.

Morsi issued a statement stressing that the power seizure was only 'temporary' and calling for political dialogue.

He also agreed to meet Egypt's judges on Monday to negotiate a solution to the crisis, the Telegraph reports.

"The presidency reiterates the temporary nature of those measures, which are not intended to concentrate power," the statement said.

"The presidency stresses its firm commitment to engage all political forces in the inclusive democratic dialogue to reach a common ground," it added.

Morsi recently granted himself sweeping powers to 'protect the revolution' and made himself immune to judicial oversight.

The country's highest body of judges, the Supreme Judicial Council, called his decrees an 'unprecedented assault'. (ANI)
