Presidential spokesman Yasser Ali on Thursday 27/12/2012 said that political powers participating in a national dialogue sponsored by President Mohamed Morsi agreed to form a panel to invite all absent forces to take part in the talks.

The fifth round of the national dialogue was held at the presidential HQ on Wednesday, the spokesman said. The meeting discussed the new parliamentary elections law ahead of the House of Representatives polls to take place soon, Ali said.

He added that the participants agreed on opening the door to receive proposals of the political powers, including the absent groups, to be presented during a plenary session of the dialogue slated for Sunday.

The national dialogue was called for by President Morsi to engage all political powers in decision-making.
