Unofficial results say Egypt has backed the controversial sharia-based constitution in the first round of voting, reports Al Arabiya. Voters got behind the document by a narrow margin of 61 percent amid opposition allegations of fraud.

A little more than half of Egypt’s electorate of 51 million were eligible to vote in the first round.

Rights groups reported some abuses, such as polling stations opening late, officials telling people to vote ‘yes’, bribery and intimidation.

The final decision of the new charter will be made next Saturday when the rest of Egypt votes.
