Egypt: Qena Governor - Police to Remain Extra Vigilant During Referendum Days

Qena Governor Abdel-Hamid el-Hagan said Police in Qena are extra vigilant to confront any attempt to disrupt the vote in the constitutional referendum in the Upper Egyptian governorate.

There is complete coordination between police and armed forces in securing polling stations, the governor said.

Egyptians are voting Tuesday and Wednesday on the draft constitution that represents a key milestone in a roadmap.

The two-day vote is seen as a heavy blow to the Muslim Brotherhood that has been branded as a terrorist group by the government.
