Egypt speaker: reforms in 2-1/2 mths

The speaker of Egypt's parliament said on Wednesday he wanted President Hosni Mubarak's promised constitutional reforms to be completed in less than two-and-half months, state television reported.

Mubarak said on Tuesday night he would not run again when his term ends in September and would work to change clauses in the constitution that at present make it almost impossible for any realistic presidential challenge to the candidate nominated by his ruling party.
