Egypt's Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF) is currently holding an emergency meeting to discuss President Mohamed Morsi’s Sunday decision to reinstate parliament's lower house, according to an Ahram Online correspondent close to the military council.

Morsi's surprise decision essentially revoked the military council's mid-June decision to dissolve the People's Assembly following a High Constitutional Court (HCC) verdict deeming an elections law – which governed last year's legislative polls – unconstitutional.

The administrative court is scheduled to rule on the constitutionality of the SCAF decision to dissolve the lower house on Monday.

Rightfully so. SCAF should work on its exit strategy
SCAF should seriously work on its exit strategy before the US Administrators decide to withdraw their backing of SCAF.

Mr Morsi is not Mr. Mandela!!!
There is no doubt in my mind that the Egyptian people would rather hear about plans for restoring the economy, creating jobs and solving the unemployment problem, rather than stocking anger against the military. It is a well-known fact that the Islamists supported Mr. Morsi and naturally he is expected to return the favour. Now it is clear to all free thinking Egyptians understand that Mr. Morsi is not Mr. Mandela, who used reconciliation to unite South Africa. Mr. Morsi is a divisive figure. And he will be badly advised if he thinks that he will be running the country from Tahrir Square with the constitutional judiciary acting as his cheering squads.

Trspped president
I believe that Mr. Mursi did not find a way to go ahead ، his efforts to make a government has been surely sabotaged by the military .

Demonstration of Leadership
President Mursi's decision to recall the Parliament clearly shows that he has leadership qualities. He has demonstrated that he can take difficult decisions and will not be intimidated by SCAF. The Army must leave politics to the politicians and do what they are good at; ie defend the country.

Leaders Care People
Morsi is a scientist, simple and honest man who can do decisions in the interest of people and nation. Egypt has got rid of opportunist leadership; saying something else doing something else. This is the time for every egyptian to stand for their rights and work for the development of nation. May Allah bless egypt.
