Deputy head of the Muslim Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party (FJP), Essam al-Erian, said on Saturday that the results of the referendum will reveal the deliberate distortion practiced by International and regional forces again Egypt's constitution, presidency and people.

The prominent Muslim Brotherhood leader said on his official page that the people will not fall easily for deception, and that they are capable of making history in spite of everyone.

Erian said "Egypt will begin a new era where the people decide for themselves when the official results are announced."

He stressed that the referendum results will not allow any forthcoming tyranny saying "The new constitution will make everyone equal before the law and ensure the rights of children."

"In the light of the constitution and the democratic life of Modern Egypt, Christians will enjoy the full rights of citizenship, they will not immigrate any longer because of discrimination, or un-employment when we achieve serious developments and a true renascence," Erian added.
