Egypt’s draft charter gets ‘yes’ majority in vote

CAIRO (AP) — Egypt’s disputed constitution has received a ‘‘yes’’ majority of more than 70 percent in the second and final round of voting on the referendum, according to preliminary results released early Sunday by the Muslim Brotherhood.

The results, posted on the Brotherhood’s website, show that 71.4 percent of those who voted Saturday said ‘‘yes’’ after 95.5 percent of the ballots were counted. Only about eight of the 25 million Egyptians eligible to vote — a turnout of about 30 percent — cast their ballots.
