Election committee: Egypt's constitution approved with 63.8 percent

Dec. 25, 2012 7:56 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 28, 2012 4:18 P.M.)
CAIRO (Reuters) -- Egypt's new constitution, drafted by Islamist supporters of President Mohamed Mursi, has been approved by 63.8 percent of voters in a two-round referendum, the supreme election committee said Tuesday.

The result, which followed votes held on Dec. 15 and on Dec. 22, matched an earlier unofficial tally given by Mursi's Muslim Brotherhood.

"We have seriously investigated all the complaints," judge Samir Abu el-Matti of the Supreme Election Committee told a news conference. The final official turnout was 32.9 percent.
