Egypt's liberal opposition has called for more protests on Sunday after the president made concessions overnight that fell short of their demands to rescind a draft constitution going to a referendum on December 15.

Mohammed Morsi met one of the opposition's demands overnight, rescinding his November 22 decrees that gave him near unrestricted powers.

But he insisted on going ahead with the referendum on a constitution adopted by his Islamist allies.

The opposition National Salvation Front called on supporters to rally against the referendum.
