Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi rejected claims that there could be a second revolution in Egypt during an interview with UK news site, the Guardian, on Sunday.

"If we changed someone in the office who (was elected) according to constitutional legitimacy - well, there will be people opposing the new president too, and a week or a month later they will ask him to step down," Morsi said during the interview.

With at least seven people dead and hundreds injured during recent clashes in Cairo between Morsi supporters and opposition, Egypt is holding its breath as a new day of clashes rolls on toward evening.

Still Morsi supported freedom of speech saying, "there can be demonstrations and people expressing their opinions. But what's critical in all this is the adoption and application of the constitution. This is the critical point."
