Cairo - Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi knows he has made
mistakes and is working to fix them, his spokesperson said on Sunday after a
day of mass protests demanding that the head of state quit.
Presidential spokesperson Omar Amer said Morsi was serious
in his repeated calls for national dialogue.
"[Morsi] announced to all of Egypt's people he made
mistakes and that he is in the process of fixing these mistakes," Amer
told a late-night news conference after millions took to the streets to demand
Morsi leave power.
He added that Morsi had "extended his hand" for
dialogue and wanted to listen to everyone, repeating the president's previous
calls for national dialogue which the opposition has rebuffed as not serious.
"I want to confirm one truth, if there is a total lack
of response to this initiative, no listening to it, no interest in it from any
side, what do you think the presidency can do?" the president's spokesperson
"The presidency is now waiting for a reaction, no
matter how small, so it can build on it."
