Egyptian Opposition Not Boycotting Constitutional Referendum

Urging a no vote for the referendum, which requires only a simple majority to pass

We'll vote, Egypt's opposition said Wednesday, ending speculation that the fractious coalition would boycott Saturday's referendum on a new constitution.

The leading opposition party National Salvation Front asked that the vote be postponed for a month, but said supporters should turn out to vote against it if the referendum proceeds as scheduled.
