Egypt’s Morsi Mentions ‘Legitimate’ 74 Times in His Speech

Activists said on Twitter Egypt’s President Mohamed Morsi has mentioned the word of legitimate word 74 times in his speech.

Morsi vowed to stay in power and die for his legitimacy Tuesday midnight, repeating several times he would pay with his life as the “price for legitimacy.”

The speech implied a challenge to the 48-hour ultimatum given by the military to all parties to come up with a solution for the political crisis, or it would impose a military-supervised roadmap for the future of the turmoil-stricken country.
