Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi announced names of 90 new members he appointed to the upper house of parliament, state media reported, and a presidential official said the list was mainly liberals and other non-Islamists.
Two thirds of the 270-member upper house were elected in a vote early this year, with one third appointed by the president. Morsi, elected in June, had not named them till now. Morsi's Islamist party and its allies dominate the assembly. (Reuters)
