Egypt's liberal opposition continued their protests Sunday, keeping up the momentum of its street campaign after President Mohammed Morsi made a partial concession but refused its main demand that he rescind a draft constitution going to a referendum on Dec. 15. Morsi annulled most of the controversial orders that gave him sweeping powers without judicial review. The opposition stopped short of advocating a boycott or a “no” just one week before voting begins, but called for another rally on Tuesday.
