Morsi to Meet With Top Egyptian Judges

Wants to explain his recent unpopular power grab

CAIRO, Nov. 26 (UPI) — Mohamed Morsi's office says the Egyptian leader's order making his rule above court review is temporary, as Morsi was to meet with the nation's top judges.

The president's office insisted Morsi was forced to assert the expansive new powers, which set off violent protests, to protect the process of writing the country's new Constitution. It said the decree, issued Thursday, would be lifted once the charter was in place.
