Real News': Egypt on the Eve of Constitutional Referendum


Egyptians will go to the polls Saturday to vote on the country’s new and controversial constitution that opponents to President Mohamed Morsi say will promote the Muslim Brotherhood and won't protect minorities or free expression, and supporters say will stabilize the turbulent nation. Only half of the country is reportedly voting because there aren’t enough judges to observe polls since many are boycotting in protest. Protestors on both sides were out in force Friday, and some lawmakers in the U.S. are now weighing in suggesting that the administration needs to stand with the opposition and pressure Morsi.

On 'Real News' Friday the panel discussed how Saturday's vote could play out, and what are Morsi's options should his side lose. Watch a clip below featuring Khairi Abaza from the Foundation for Defense of Democracies:
