CAIRO (AP) - Preliminary results released by Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood show that the disputed constitution has received a "yes" majority of more than 70 percent in the second and final round of voting.
The results, posted on the Brotherhood's website early Sunday, show that eight of the 25 million Egyptians eligible to vote - a turnout of about 30 percent - cast their ballots Saturday, a turnout of about 30 percent.
The referendum was held over two days, on Dec. 15 and 22.
In the first round, about 56 percent said "yes" to the charter. The turnout then was about 32 percent.
The Brotherhood, of which Islamist President Mohammed Morsi hails, has accurately predicted election results in the past by tallying results provided by its representatives at polling centers. Official results would not be announced for several days.
