Opposition cries foul as Egypt constitution finalized

• Reuters

Mursi said his decree halting court challenges to his decisions, which provoked protests and violence from Egyptians fearing a new dictator was emerging less than two years after they ousted Hosni Mubarak, was "for an exceptional stage".


"It will end as soon as the people vote on a constitution," he told state television on Thursday night. "There is no place for dictatorship."


The assembly was expected to finish approving the draft constitution on Friday, allowing a referendum to be held as soon as mid-December on a text the Islamists say reflects Egypt's new freedoms.
