Members of a presidential national dialogue committee said Saturday that President Mohammed Morsi has agreed to rescind some new powers he had given himself, but affirmed that a referendum on a disputed constitution will be held on schedule. The statement came after a meeting that was boycotted by the main opposition leaders who had protested the referendum. Morsi rejected opposition demands for the Dec. 15 vote to be canceled.
