#AceWorldNews says More than 98 percent of Egypt’s voters have approved a new, military-backed constitution, said the country’s High Election Commission on Saturday. 38.6 percent of the country’s more than 53 million eligible voters participated in the referendum on the constitution. The approved constitution will replace the one signed into law by Mohamed Morsi, the former Islamist president. Morsi was overthrown in a military coup in July last year. The Muslim Brotherhood movement that backed the former president had called for a boycott of the two-day vote and to stage anti-government protests.
