Egypt: HEC Spokesman - Referendum Results Within 72 Hours

Official spokesman for the High Elections Committee (HEC) Counselor Hisham Mokhtar said in line with law, the results of the referendum will be announced within 72 hours after the end of voting

Mokhtar said the final results will not be announced before checking the sheets of voters for avoiding any double voting.

He said the announcement of the results will include the voting of the Egyptians abroad and at home, adding the Public Prosecution would be informed of any excesses for taking legal action.

He said the final results will be announced in a world press conference at the State Information Service (SIS).
