A pre-recorded interview by Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi is scheduled to be broadcast on Thursday night.

Presenters Shahira Amin and Tamer Hanafi will conduct the interview, according to sources at Egyptian state television.

Morsi is expected to discuss the crisis currently rocking Egypt's political scene in the wake of last week's controversial presidential decree.

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

Tuesday saw massive popular protests by opponents of Morsi and his decree. Similar protests are expected this Friday, while Saturday is expected to witness popular rallies staged by the president's supporters.
