BBC News - Egypt referendum strongly backs constitution changes
In the first phase of Egypt's transition to democracy, the Egyptian people have given a ringing endorsement to a series of constitutional amendments designed to make the electoral process more democratic, in the run-up to the first free parliamentary elections in the country.
This is a very positive development for Egypt and for the Arab world. But it's important to remember that the changes are not finished. This is just an interim Constitution. In the long term, I think it would be a mistake for Egypt to keep the office of the president at all. A country like Egypt with a history of military strongmen would be much better suited for a parliamentary system IMO. Otherwise it risks relapsing into authoritarianism.
