Egypt: Voting of Egyptian Expatriates Over Referendum Extended Until Monday

The Higher Elections Commission (HEC), the body supervising a referendum over the nation's new constitution, decided to extend voting of Egyptian expatriates on the constitution until Monday, according to the local times of the diplomatic missions.

The decision covers those who will cast their votes in person or by mail.

Votes that will arrive at the premises of the diplomatic missions by post after the set deadline will not be considered, the commission said.
