There is no doubt that the parliamentary election results were expressive of all Egyptians and their free will, the new parliament, too."
He added: "The upcoming Parliament is a real achievement for this revolution and its martyrs, who live on in all our hearts, their blood – our responsibility, their right to fair retribution and speedy trials, and for the Victims of the Revolution, who must get their full rights."
He continued: "The Egyptian proverbial house will be put in order, in time, especially the Constituent Assembly of the Egyptian Constitution, which should be reflective of the desire, the choice and the will of all the Egyptian people."
Dr. Morsi stressed that the Egyptian Constitution will be drafted without exemption of any stakeholders or exclusion of any parties, forces or currents.
