Cairo, Egypt -- Egypt's newly elected president, Mohammed Morsi, has offered the return of the country's Islamist-dominated parliament after it was dissolved by the military.
The president is also calling for new parliamentary elections within 60 days of the adoption of the country's new constitution.
That isn't expected to happen until later this year.
The military generals who ruled before Morsi dissolved the legislature based on a Supreme Constitutional Court ruling.
Morsi's decision appears to be in defiance of the military's "constitutional declaration" that gave it legislative power and stripped Morsi of much of his authority.
The military formally handed power to Morsi on June 30.
