Official confirmation for Egypt's constitution vote

Egypt’s Supreme Election Committee has confirmed that the controversial new constitution has been approved.

Nearly 64 per cent of the electorate in the two stage referendum voted for it according to the official figures.

The committee said all complaints had been fully investigated after the opposition had claimed there had been a litany of irregularities in the referendum.

Opponents accuse the President of foisting an Islamist agenda on the Egyptian people.

Less than a third of the electorate turned out.
