CAIRO - Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi said on Wednesday he was forming an all-party committee to propose amendments to the constitution and was inviting party leaders to start work on it on Thursday.

The move to address complaints about the constitution, pushed through a referendum by Morsi and his Islamist supporters against vocal complaints from the opposition, appeared to be a key point in his speech and seemed to address a call from the army for political factions to forge a new consensus.Morsi also said he would form a second committee to work on "national reconciliation".
