Al Azhar Grand Imam Ahmed el Tayyeb on Saturday cast his ballot in the referendum on the constitutional amendments in Martyr Moustafa Youssri school in Cairo's Heliopolis district.

Earlier in the day، Egypt’s Mufti Shawki Allam cast his vote in the referendum.

Allam called on citizens to cast their ballots in the referendum and exercise their constitutional right with the aim of serving the homeland.

As the first day for resident Egyptians to vote in referendum on draft constitutional amendments kicked off on Saturday، Egyptians were keen to participate in forming up that piece of Egypt's history by casting their ballots in the constitutional amendment referendum.

Polls opened Saturday through Monday with 61 million Egyptians eligible to vote on the new amendments، which would increase the presidential term from four to six years، allocate 25 percent of parliamentary seats to women، re-introduce the Shura Council and reinstate vice president post.

TV channels showed queues of voters at some polling stations waiting minutes before the doors were opened and they were allowed in to cast their ballot by either agree or disagree on a set of proposed constitutional amendments passed by the parliament Tuesday.
