Text size Aa Aa

Egyptian President Mohammed Mursi has spoken on state television to justify his controversial new constitution.

He said the decree will help Egypt on its transition to democracy as it allows him to move the country in a focused direction in a very short time.

Mursi said this is a temporary procedure for a specific time, until Egyptians agree on a new constitution and the declaration will be void as soon as an agreement is reached on this point.
