A number os Salafist members of the Constituent Assembly, led by former MP Nadder Bakkar, the spokesperson of Nour Party, skipped the opening of the playing of the national anthem at the start of president Morsi's meeting with assembly members at the Conference Call on Saturday night, reported Ahram Online Arabic news website.

A number of Salafist members of the dissolved People's Assembly have refused to stand to the anthem on a number of occasions in assembly sessions before its dissolution in June 2012 citing their rejection to abide by anything except religious edicts.

The president called in his meeting with the Islamist-led assembly for a referendum on a draft constitution which is rejected by non-Islamist forces.
