Official sources: Egypt voters back new constitution
TEHRAN (FNA)- About 90 percent of Egyptians who voted in a referendum approved a new constitution, the state news agency and a government official said.

Early results of a ballot could allow Army Chief General Abdel Fattah Sisi to declare his candidacy for president, RT reported.

The constitution will replace one signed into law by Mohamed Mursi, the former Islamist president who was overthrown by the military in July.

Mursi's Muslim Brotherhood had called for a boycott of the two-day vote and anti-government protests.
