CAIRO - Egypt's President Mohamed Morsi will on Saturday address the upper house of parliament which now holds full legislative powers following the adoption of a new constitution, the council's speaker said.

Under the new charter, legislative powers temporarily held by Morsi have now been transferred to the Islamist-dominated upper house of parliament, until a new lower house is elected in a vote expected in about two months.
