CAIRO - Egypt's new prime minister said on Tuesday the ruling army would grant him some presidential powers, the state news agency reported, after politicians and protesters accused the military of failing to give the former cabinet enough control over policy.

Kamal al-Ganzouri, who has been forming a "government of national salvation", said the army would issue a decree "within hours" to amend the interim constitution so that the prime minister held "presidential powers except those concerning the judiciary and armed forces."
