Sporadic turnout for the referendum in Gharbeya…and sectarian directing against the constitution

Referendum polling stations in Gharbeya saw sporadic turnout in all provinces [marakez] and villages of the governorate for voting on the constitution. Meanwhile some referendum polling stations witnessed Copts directing voters to vote “no” to the constitution, men in Al-Sinaee School for Boys, station #47, and women in Kassem Amin School, polling station #60.

A judge in station #14 in Al-Salam experimental school forbade Essam Mohamed, a representative of the National Council for Human Rights, from entering the headquarters of the station, on the grounds that his identification card was not stamped by the Supreme Elections Committee.

A judge in station #166 in Kafr Sinbad lost the election notebooks, requiring lawyers to provide laptops to help voters know their voting numbers.

A judge’s aides did not come to the polling station #92 in Al-Ganoub School, forcing him to use assistants from the school staff.

And in the Zefta province [markiz] in the village of Damanhour Al-Wahsh, the opening of polling station #73 was delayed until 10 am, due to the late arrival of the judge amid average voter turnout.
