Farcical election-the violence will continue and Egypt will be like Syria
68.4% boycotted....This means that nearly 74 million Egyptians had nothing to do with the referrendum. Besides, tyhose who overthrew a democratically-elected president can not be entrusted to organize honest elections.

The world is not blind
Do the new dictator, a Mubrik' replacement can fool the world? I feel sorry for Eyptians who three years ago got the fruit of democracy but lost by the complicities of Israel, USA and Saudis. May Allah give them wisdom and bring them back on the road to democracy and peace, not only for Egypt but for the neighbours particularly Palestinians (especially of Gaza, who are betrayed by their so called "Arab brothers").

Table: Official results of Egypt's 2014 constitutional referendum
A constitutional referendum representing 38.6 of the electorate - even with 98% of that 38.6% consenting is not a "plurality vote" to validate the referendum. No constitution representing a minority consent has ever been recognized in history as valid - except probably in North Korea. If General Sissi wants to make Egypt the North Korea of Middle East by declaring the referendum valid, he would just make himself the laughing of comedians around the world. The revelation the referendum brought to the light of publicity is that General Sissi and his civilian appointees who run the country have no political legitimacy. He had better visit Mr. Morsi in prison, sit down with him, and reconcile for the good of Egypt. It is the only viable choice now for Egypt to avoid more bloodshed and indefinite civil strife. There won't be peace and prosperity in Egypt until the 52% of the voters who elected Mr. Morsi have a say in how Egypt is governed. It is time now for the rulers of Egypt to drop their egos and accept a rational position where every party an political block gets only a half loaf and reconcile with for the good of the country. Anything else will be just vanity with catastrophic consequences. Nikos Retsos, retired professor, USA

No need to hide behind a fake Greek name or a fake professorship claims.
Your drivel screams Muslim brotherhood terrorists propaganda. All elections or votes for referendum do not get 100% participation especially when your ilk is terrorizing the voters. Hate to burst your bubble but non participants intentionally or unintentionally do not determine a referendum of any kind.

So Morsi's constitution is more void! It passed by only 32% of the population and got 64% of the vote. So Morsi is more illegitemate, especially that 20 millions voted for 2014 constitutiom and only 9 millions to Morsi's!

You need help with mathematis
Dear Mr Expert, Where were you when Morsi's constituion was passed and had a turnout of 33% and only 64% voted "Yes"? Now you have 38% turnout and 98,6% voting "Yes". And you are now screaming loud saying "not valid".So you were happy with the 11 million who voted for Morsi's constitution and not happy with over 21 million who voted for the 30 of June revolution referendum?
