Egypt: Vote On Constitutional Referendum

20130908-063629.jpgEgyptians are voting in a two-day referendum to decide whether to adopt a new constitution supported by the military-backed interim government.

Polls opened Tuesday morning for the vote, which is seen as a referendum on a likely presidential run by the country’s army chief, Adbel Fattah al-Sisi, who ousted former president Mohamed Morsi in July.

A group that includes Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood urged Egyptians to boycott the referendum and hold peaceful protests against a process they have called illegitimate.

Analysts predict the constitutional referendum will easily pass.
