With only 19% of eligible voters voting in favor it is hard to call it a real victory.

If he could only get 30% of the voters to vote it shows that Egypt has much bigger problems awaiting resolution and the economy is biggest item in most people’s minds.

195: = only 30% of eligible voters actually voted, and of those that did 63% approved thus 0.30 x 0.63 = 19.14% approval.

I fear Egypt is in for more troubled times´╗┐
