Is Egyptian President won?
This is a question
Yes won Egyptian President Mohammed Morsy

Have canceled Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi Saturday night Constitutional Declaration issued on 22 November last year and caused a severe political crisis
And issued a new declaration, according to what was announced in a press conference, the presidential palace.

It was agreed to keep the date of December 15 / Dec. referendum on the draft constitution because it can not legally change this date.

There are many explanations for this new constitutional declaration

Where said Mohammed calculated, and the Minister of State for Legal Affairs, that what we have achieved today is the alternative to the country's emergence from the crisis,
Adding, that the new constitutional declaration drawing a clear path, whether the result of the referendum yes or no, and in the case of changing the date of the Constitution need to the proclamation of the Constitution last.

There are reports that the President of the Republic replaced the materials there was fear,
The new constitutional declaration provides for the election of a new Constituent Assembly freely directly if the current rejection of the draft constitution.

I guess that this is an important achievement

Where the only reference is the Egyptian people instead of public figures from the opposition parties or the pro-Egyptian President

This is the only solution to the crisis of Egypt

I also agree on the words Mahmoud Mekki, Vice President of the Republic, during the press conference today, who confirmed that no creature can impose his will on the people, which is the source of authority.

Has continued since Saturday afternoon and late into the evening at the presidential palace in the capital Egyptian national dialogue called for by President Mursi to discuss the demands of the opposition and the ways out of the current political crisis,

While the army called political forces to resort to dialogue to resolve their differences, stressing that he would not allow violence.
