Protesters in Cairo's Tahrir Square maintain their sit in even as President Mohamed Morsi prepares to meet senior judges to ease the crisis over his power grab.

The protesters are opposing President Mohammed Morsi’s recent edicts, which place him above oversight of any kind. The decree stated courts cannot overturn any decision or law Morsi has issued since taking office in June or over the next six months, until a new constitution is finalized.

Morsi has now seemed to have reached out for a compromise by discussing the issue with the country’s highest judicial body, the Supreme Judicial Council. Morsi is due to meet the senior judges sometime on Monday.

Meanwhile, large demonstrations have already been planned by supporters and opponents of Morsi on Tuesday.
