CAIRO, Feb 26 (Reuters) - A judicial committee formed to draft changes to Egypt's constitution on Saturday proposed curbing the length of the president's term to four years and imposing a two-term limit on a leader.

Tariq al-Bishri, head of the judicial committee formed by Egypt's ruling military council, was speaking to journalists in Cairo. The current presidential term is six years without any limit on the number of terms.

The constitutional amendments are to be put to a national referendum. (Reporting by Marwa Awad; Writing by Tom Perry)
