Egypt: Egyptians Vote On Disputed Constitution

| December 23, 2012 | 0 Comments

Cairo — Egyptians voted on a constitution drafted by Islamists on Saturday in a second round of balloting expected to approve a charter that opponents say will create deeper turmoil in the Arab world’s most populous nation.

For some supporters, a ‘yes’ vote was a chance to make society and laws more Islamic.

As polling opened on Saturday, a coalition of Egyptian rights groups reported a number of irregularities.

They said some polling stations had opened late, that Islamists urging a “yes” vote had illegally campaigned at some stations, and reported some voter registration irregularities, including the listing of one dead person.
