Egypt's Judges Club's referendum monitoring room said that 26 polling stations in Cairo, Alexandria, Daqahliya, and Gharbiya governorates lacked judicial supervision.

The club, which had announced a 90 per cent boycott by its members against supervising the referendum, said earlier, however, it would "keep an eye" on the voting process.

The general assembly of the club had previously taken a stance against the referendum due to a previous constitutional declaration by President Mohamed Morsi that made him impervious to judicial oversight.

The Supreme Electoral Commission had announced that over 7000 judges decided to break rank with the club and monitor Saturday's vote in more than 6375 polling stations in 10 governorates voting today.

Looses chance
Liberals and secular lost there chance to put pressure on MB and there allies to take care of their opinion by boycotting the drafting process.They can't win the street battle. For the sake of stability and for the relief of the people all must sit together and start amending the constitution once it is adopted with no ax hanging on them by polluted judiciary.
