Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi Issues Order Preventing Courts from Overturning any of his Decisions

“Egyptian authorities say no date has been set for official results of this month’s two-stage referendum on an Islamist-backed draft constitution, as authorities investigate opposition complaints of fraud.

Speaking Monday, members of Egypt’s election commission also said they were still compiling results from the staggered voting in Egypt’s 27 provinces on December 15 and 22.

The Muslim Brotherhood movement of President Mohamed Morsi said Sunday that unofficial results show the constitution won approval from 64 percent of voters in the two rounds. It said turnout was about 32 percent.

The liberal opposition National Salvation Front filed complaints with the election commission Sunday, alleging that a lack of judicial supervision of the referendum led to rigging and intimidation of voters by Islamists. Many judges boycotted the process to protest Morsi’s recent power grab that briefly put his decisions above the law.
