After two tiresome election phases, Egypt's contentious draft constitution passed with 64 per cent approval ratings.

Around 10.5 million Egyptians endorsed the bill, a number that is lower than the 13.2 million that voted President Mohamed Morsi into office last summer to serve for a four-year term.

Only three out of 27 governorates saw a majority of 'No' vote. Upper Egypt governorates witnessed the highest approval ratings, with 'Yes' winning by comfortable margins across the board.

The toughest challenge to the new constitution was in the capital city, the largest in Egypt, rejecting the constitution with 57 per cent. The vote in the Mediterranean city of Alexandria came as a surprise to many with 'Yes' winning by 55.6 per cent.

Fayoum governorate, 45 minutes south of Cairo, voted an impressive 89 per cent in favor of the bill. Marsa Matrouh, an established Islamist stronghold, recorded just above six thousand 'No' votes.

Turnover fell to some 32 per cent, well below the 49 per cent seen in the Presidential runoffs back in June.

No governorate saw a turnover above 40 per cent and Upper Egypt's Beni Suef witnessed the highest participation rate at 37.82 per cent.

No Mandate
31% turnout times 64% YES vote equals just 19.8% of the eligible voting population publicly supporting the Constitution. Less than one fifth of the eligible population. Sorry, but in truly democratic nations, that is not considered a mandate. God help our poor, poor Egypt...

No reason to celebrate
If the numbers are correct, roughly 20% of Egyptians gave the new Constitution their thumbs up. I really don't see any reason for celebrations, because this is pretty tragical by all standards for what should have been a new beginning worthy of this country's long and glorious history... This tendency of "selling a democratic process" to the people and just taking non-voters out of the equation is dangerously simplistic.

Be Patient to learn democracy
congratulations to 'yes' voters and the 'no' ones should regroup yourselves and fight later on at the same ballot boxes and avoid these politicians who always send you to tahrir for their own selfishness they should learn to work as opposition just like the advanced world.
