The Muslim Brotherhood and its political wing will be demonstrating across Egypt on Saturday in support of the president's Constitutional Declaration, the Freedom and Justice Party's (FJP) media consultant Ahmed El-Sobaei told Ahram Online on Wednesday.

The Brotherhod had earlier cancelled demonstrations planned for Tuesday fearing that clashes would erupt with rival protesters against the declaration.

On Tuesday, more than a hundred thousand people demonstrated in Tahrir Square protesting the decree.

The decree states that presidential decisions will enjoy temporary immunity from legal challenge. The decree also protects Egypt's Islamist-led Constituent Assembly, tasked with drafting a new constitution, and the Shura Council (the upper house of parliament) from dissolution by court order.
