CAIRO: Egypt’s President Mohamed Mursi will respect a court ruling overturning his decree for the dissolved parliament to convene, his office said on Wednesday.

“If yesterday’s constitutional court ruling prevents parliament from fulfilling its responsibilities, we will respect that because we are a state of the law,” a statement said, a day after the court froze Mursi’s decree.
