    Egytian citizens can finally have their say on December 15th when they will vote to accept to approve or reject the country's newly drafted constitution. Meanwhile, protests in Cairo intensified on Saturday when pro-government demonstrators added to the mayhem of ongoing protests by their secularist rivals. While Egypt has been protesting for a week over President Mohamed Morsi’s decree banning legal opposition to his power, Saturday’s protests came after the Cabinet passed a draft of the constitution.

Morsi had claimed his decree would only last through the passing of a new constitution.
