Egyptian Referendum Results
Via the BBC: Egypt referendum: ‘98% back new constitution’
Egypt’s referendum on a new constitution has been backed by 98.1% of people who voted, officials say.
Turnout was 38.6% of the more than 50-million eligible voters, the election committee said.
I must confess, I am a tad skeptical about any result that takes days to publish and shows an overwhelming victory for a referendum that a) was held under authoritarian rule, and b) for which there was no real alternative (let alone one that the opposition would prefer).
It is worth noting that the opposition did boycott the election, and turnout was low.
Legitimacy producing, this is not.
