Egypt delays early voting in disputed referendum

CAIRO (AP) - The head of Egypt's election committee says the planned voting of Egyptians who live abroad on a disputed draft constitution has been postponed.

Saturday's announcement could signal an attempt by President Mohammed Morsi to give a room for negotations with the opposition, which is demanding the cancelation of the whole referendum set for a nationwide vote on Dec. 15.

Ismail Hamdi says that the weeklong expatriate voting, which had been due to begin Saturday, will begin Wednesday instead.
