Egypt is most likely to receive the Islamist Constitution of President Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood which supports him. This is proved by the preliminary results of the first round of the plebiscite summed up today. The referendum is being held in two rounds. The first one took place on the 15th of December, the second is scheduled for the 22nd of December. The new Constitution will give the president much more power.
The official results will be published only after the second round of voting but even today information agencies confirm that between 54 and 56% of Egyptians voted for the new Constitution. It is not 90% announced by the Muslim Brotherhood on the day of voting but still enough to win.Analyst of the Russian Institute of World Economics and International Relations at the Russian Academy of Sciences Viktor Nadein-Rayevsky explains the dangers of the Constitution offered by the Islamists.
