Egypt Faces Landmark Vote In Democratic Transition

Egypt faces landmark vote in democratic transition

CAIRO -- Egypt's transition to democracy after 30 years of authoritarian rule faces a major test on Saturday when Egyptians vote in a referendum on amendments to the constitution. Opponents are pushing heavily for a "no" vote, saying the changes don't go far enough and that the ruling military is rushing the process.
