Egyptians Vote on Constitutional Reforms

The proposed amendments include limiting the president to two four-year terms, capping emergency laws to six months unless they are extended by public referendum, and placing elections under judicial oversight.

According to the ruling armed forces, thousands of international monitors were in place at polling stations across the country to ensure transparency in the voting process.

Dr. Abdullah Al-Ashal is a former deputy foreign minister and a teacher of law. He had this to say to Press TV:

The presidential and parliamentary elections are both expected to be held before the year's end.

Regardless of whether the amendments to the constitution will pass or not, what is certain is that the democratic process that the people have protested for is here for every citizen to participate in.
