President Mohamed Mursi has congratulated Egyptians for endorsing a new constitution and urged all parties to join him in a national dialogue.

Anxiety over a deepening political and economic crisis has gripped the country over past weeks but Mursi told parliament that his contested constitution marks a new start.

“l believed in the necessity of this constitution to be a strong charter that will be a reference for us all,” Mursi told parliament. “It is a constitution which makes the president be at the service of the people, a constitution which limits the president’s prerogatives and prevents him from becoming a tyrant,” he added.

Opposition groups have not called for new protests, suggesting that weeks of civil unreast over the constitution may be subsiding not that it has passed.
