Egypt\'s Tamarod campaign which launched the protests that prompted the ouster of president Mohamed Morsi called on Tuesday for changes to the country\'s interim charter, their spokesman told AFP. Mahmud Badr said his group was drafting proposed amendments to the temporary constitution with the help of experts, including newly-appointed vice-president Mohamed ElBaradei, which they would present to the president later on Tuesday. Badr said they had not seen the charter, which outlines the president\'s powers and lays out a timetable for fresh elections, before it was adopted late on Monday by Egypt\'s interim leader Adly Mansour.
