Egypt 'could delay' referendum: VP

- December 07, 2012 - Updated 2339 PKT - From Web Edition

CAIRO: Egypt's President Mohamed Morsi "could accept to

delay the referendum" on a draft constitution disputed by the opposition, if there are no legal consequences to such a decision, Vice-President Mahmud Mekki told AFP on Friday.

Morsi would consider postponing the plebiscite on the contested charter if the opposition guaranteed not to challenge the move on the grounds that referendums legally have to be held two weeks after being formally presented to the president, Mekki said.
