Expats take part in referendum on constitution in Tehran

Fri, Apr. 19, 2019
CAIRO - 19 April 2019: Members of the Egyptian community in Iran voted on Friday in the headquarters of the “Egyptian Interest Section in Tehran” on draft constitutional amendments despite bad weather embodied in rain, wind, and the possibility of thunderstorms.

Last month, floods across Iran caused 18 deaths, 70 injuries, blockage of roads, and landslides.

Voting for expats is held on April 19 - 21 in 140 polling places located in 124 countries where members of the Egyptian communities can cast their ballots between 9:00 and 21:00 in each country’s local time.

Voters need to bring a valid Egyptian passport or an Egyptian national ID whether valid or expired as stated by the rules set by the National Elections Authority (NEA).

Resident Egyptians are invited to vote on April 20 - 22. The parliament passed a draft to amend and add 25 articles to the constitution. Those are mainly on the length of presidential terms, introduction of a senate, quotas in the House of Representatives, the selection mechanisms of courts presidents, and the role of the Egyptian Armed Forces.
