The Egyptian "deadline" is tomorrow, from CNN: Showdown? Egypt's Morsy defies military 'ultimatum'

Egyptian President Mohamed Morsy refused Tuesday to bow to a military ultimatum that he find a solution to the unrest sweeping the country or be pushed aside, setting the stage for a possible showdown.

Morsy declared he was elected president in balloting that was free and representative of the will of the people.
It was unclear what steps the military would take given Morsy's refusal to meet its Wednesday evening deadline. The military has previously stopped short of saying that it was suggesting a coup.
Hoping for the best for the people of Egypt.
