Egypt Referendum On Draft Constitution

December 8, 2012 by  

Egypt Referendum On Draft Constitution, Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi “could accept to delay the referendum” on a draft constitution disputed by the opposition, Vice President Mahmud Mekki told AFP on Friday.

Mekki said the president could delay the 15 December referendum if the opposition guaranteed not to challenge the move on those grounds later, AFP news agency reported.

Morsi was expected to press ahead on Saturday with talks on ways to end Egypt’s worst crisis since he took office even though the country’s main opposition leaders have vowed to stay away.

Cairo and other cities have been rocked by violent protests since November 22, when Morsi promulgated a decree awarding himself sweeping powers that put him above the law.

The upheaval in the most populous Arab nation, following the fall of Hosni Mubarak last year, worries the West, in particular the United States, which has given it billions of dollars in military and other aid since Egypt made peace with Israel in 1979.
