Austin American-Statesman - - ADS -

Egyp­tian Pres­i­dent Mo­hammed Morsi en­acted a new and di­vi­sive con­sti­tu­tion Wed­nes­day even as he at­tempted to reach out to op­po­nents of his Is­lamist government in his most con­cil­ia­tory re­marks since vot­ers be­gan con­sid­er­ing the doc­u­ment. Of­fer­ing to en­gage in a na­tional di­a­logue with an in­creas­ingly or­ga­nized op­po­si­tion move­ment, Morsi said in a na­tion­ally tele­vised ad­dress, “We don’t want to go back to a time when there was one opin­ion and an ar­ti­fi­cial ma­jor­ity,” re­fer­ring to former Pres­i­dent Hosni Mubarak’s Na­tional Demo­cratic Party.
