Egypt's Elections Authority to announce results of referendum on constitutional amendments Tuesday
Published in Ahram Online on 23 - 04 - 2019

Egypt's National Elections Authority (NEA) says it will an announce on Tuesday evening the results of the country's referendum on constitutional amendments, one day after a three-day voting process concluded at home.
According to the state-run MENA news agency, the results will be announced by the NEA at 7pm.
The NEA spokesman Judge Mahmoud El-Sharif has said earlier that the results of the vote count will comprise the combined total from the ballots both at home and abroad.
The referendum was held in 10,878 polling stations and 13,919 committees, while the number of judges supervising the referendum was about 20,000 from different judicial bodies, assisted by some 120,000 employees, according to earlier statements by El-Sharif.
The NEA spokesman also highlighted that the number of eligible voters is 61,344,503; the number of male voters is 30,788,369 and the number of female voters is 30,446,134.
Over the past three days, Egyptians at home cast their ballots on 14 amendments to the 2014 charter, which were overwhelmingly approved by parliament, with 531 out of 596 members voting in favour, 22 voting against and one abstention.
The amendments include changing the length of presidential terms from four to six years.
They also extend the second term of President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi, which is set to end in 2022, by two years, and allow him to run for office for another term in 2024.
The amendments also allocate a quarter of the seats in parliament to women.
They also give the president new powers to appoint members of the judiciary, and would create a second chamber of parliament (the Senate), with one-third of its members to be appointed by the president, and introduces the post of vice president.
El-Sisi was first elected president in 2014 and was re-elected last year in a landslide victory where he secured 97 percent of the vote.
