Egypt's Morsi says no alternative for constitutional legitimacy


08:12, July 03, 2013

CAIRO, July 2 (Xinhua) -- Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi said late Tuesday that there will be no alternative for "constitutional legitimacy," amid the ongoing political division in his country, where the opposition and liberal are asking him to quit power.

In a televised speech, Morsi said only "constitutional legitimacy" guarantees that there will be no civil strife.

Prior to the speech, Morsi asked the military to withdraw its 48-hour ultimatum announced a day ago, and said he will stick to " constitutional legitimacy."

"(He) calls on the armed forces to withdraw their warning and rejects any to be dictated to internally or externally," according to a tweet on Morsi's official Twitter page.

On Monday, the Egyptian military set a 48-hour deadline for all parties to resolve their conflict before imposing a military- supervised roadmap for the future of the turmoil-stricken country.
