Critics of Egypt's Morsi Reject His Call for 'Dialogue'

Ad Feedback

In a speech on national TV this week, Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi admitted he's made mistakes and promised to give political opponents and minorities more say in governing.

"Today, I present an audit of my first year, with full transparency, along with a road map. Some things were achieved and others not," he said Wednesday. "I have made mistakes on a number of issues."

But opponents of Morsi are rejecting his call for dialogue and national reconciliation.

Critics say it's too little too late and they're calling for his resignation and an early election.

They charge that Morsi has empowered radical Islamists, pushed through unpopular constitutional amendments, and tried to grab more power.

Widespread protests are expected this weekend on the first anniversary of Morsi's presidency.
