Egypt Islamists say want constitution referendum on time

A coalition of the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamist groups called on Saturday for a referendum on a draft constitution to go ahead on time on Dec. 15, after liberals who complain that the document is biased demanded a delay in the vote.

 

The main Islamist coalition "confirmed the need for measures to hold the referendum on time on Dec. 15 without any amendment or delay", a spokesman for the group told a news conference. (Reuters)
