Egypt: President Mursi set to win Constitution referendum 
[Dr. Abdul Ruff Colachal, Specialist on State Terrorism ;Chancellor-Founder of Centor for International Affairs(CIA); Commentator  on world affairs, Analyst on Middle East, Chronicler of Foreign occupations & Freedom movements (Palestine, Kashmir, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Xinjiang, Chechnya, etc.) Former university Teacher; website: http://abdulruff.wordpress.com/mail: abdulruff_jnu@yahoo.com]

Majority of Egyptians have on  16th December voted in favour of Morsi's ruling  Brotherhood party  in the first round of a referendum on a proposed Islamist-backed constitution and thus signals approval of  the document submitted by the ruling Muslim Brotherhood. The vote was held on 15th December Saturday in 10 of the country's 27 provinces, including Cairo and the Mediterranean port city of Alexandria, Egypt's second largest city.
Interim results showed nearly 57 percent of voters said "yes" to the charter, while about 43 percent voted 'no.'  The Brotherhood, from which President Mohammed Morsi hails, has in the past accurately predicted election results. It said some 32 percent of over 26 million registered voters participated in Saturday's poll. Egypt's remaining 25 million voters, mostly from conservative rural regions, cast ballots next week. When the constitution is approved by a simple majority of voters, the Islamists empowered after the overthrow of longtime authoritarian leader Hosni Mubarak would likely gain more clout. The upper house of parliament, dominated by Islamists, would be given the authority to legislate until a new lower house is elected.
(In case the draft proposal is rejected, elections would be held within three months for a new panel to write a new constitution). In the meantime, legislative powers would remain with Morsi, who won the presidency with a narrow election victory in June.
Inspired by colourless democracy of the western terrocracies, many Egyptians for fun oppose Islamic way of life and constitution. The vote capped a near two-year struggle over Egypt's identity since the ouster of Mubarak, with the latest crisis over the charter evolving into a dispute over whether Egypt should move toward a religious state under Morsi's Brotherhood and their ultraconservative Salafi allies, or one that retains secular traditions and an Islamic character.
The Brotherhood and other Islamists enjoy wide support in most of the 17 provinces voting on Dec. 22, something that could raise the overall "yes" vote percentage to higher levels. But the Islamists led by the Brotherhood are widely thought to have lost some of their popularity because of the perception that Morsi and the Islamist-backed government of Prime Minister Hesham Kandil have failed to resolve any of the country's problems, like unemployment, rising prices and security. Worse still, Egyptians are bracing for a wide range of steep price hikes as part of the government's program to boost revenues and restructure the economy to secure a $4.8 billion loan from the International Monetary Fund.  Major zones of strikes like Cairo oppose the new constitution without justification. So, 68 and 72 percent of voters cast "no" ballots in Cairo and Alexandria respectively. The only other two provinces where the "no" vote was the majority were Gharbiyah and Daqahliya in the Nile Delta, north of Cairo.
Polling was peaceful. There were no serious incidents of violence during Saturday's vote. There was no evidence of mass fraud, monitors from the opposition and rights groups said the boycott of the referendum by most judges who oppose the president was reflected in the chaos prevailing in some polling centres.
Voting in the remaining provinces will be held Dec. 22.  Prevailing general national mood is  to support the new government  of Mohammed Mursi. Indicators suggest that President Mursi is set to win Constitution referendum.
People of Egypt who  elected President Mursi and Brotherhood with a huge mandate  expect a lot from the  government.

Global media today, even in Muslim nations, are controlled by CIA  & other anti-Islamic agencies. Regimes often resort to  state terrorism.Terrorism is caused by anti-Islamic forces. Fake democracies like USA, Israel and India have zero-tolerance to any criticism of their anti-Muslim and other aggressive practices. Anti-Muslimism and anti-Islamism are more dangerous than "terrorism" Anti-Islamic forces & terrorists are using criminal elements for terrorizing the world and they in disguise are harming genuine interests of ordinary Muslims
