Armed Forces prepare to secure the referendum on the draft constitution, Facebook (Egypt), 10 January 2014

As the dates for Egypt’s constitutional referendum approach (14-15 January 2014), the Armed Forces are demonstrating their capacity to keep the peace under the watchful eye of Minister of Defence, Deputy Prime Minister and national hero General Abdel Fatah Al-Sisi. Multiple groups have announced that they will be voting against the new constitution or are calling for a boycott of the referendum after the Egyptian military overthrew deposed President Mohammed Morsi last July. An unofficial English translation of the proposed constitution can be accessed here.
