CAIRO - Egypt's Nour Party said on Monday it could join the assembly writing a new constitution, adding Islamist support to the military's political transition plan following its overthrow of President Mohamed Morsi last month.

Nour, the second largest Islamist party after Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood, said it had reservations about the fact that the constitutional amendments would take place under an appointed interim president as opposed to an elected one.

It also wanted certain clauses in the constitution retained.
