The international delegation tasked with observing and following up on the referendum on Egypt's constitutional amendments said that the voter turnout doubled nationwide on the third day of the voting, compared to the previous two days.

According to the commission's report, there was a huge turnout in the various districts of Egypt's governorates, particularly in Cairo, Port Said, Menoufiya, Faiyum and Kafr El-Sheikh.

The delegation also noted that a number of rallies were held in several areas in Cairo in support of the constitutional amendments.

The international delegation had 69 members monitoring the voting process in 14 governorates.

The delegation is a coalition of four international and local NGOs from three continents. The NGOs are EKO from Greece, Jalis forum from Uganda, Volunteers Without Borders from Lebanon, and Maat for Peace, Development and Human Rights from Egypt.
