The “yes” vote was strongest in deeply conservative, rural provinces of the south, Assiut and Sohag. It also narrowly carried Egypt’s second largest city, Alexandria, where nearly 56 percent voted “yes,” according to updated results after earlier, partial data showed “no” votes ahead.

The Brotherhood and other Islamists enjoy wide support in most of the 17 provinces voting next Saturday, something that could work in favor of the “yes” vote.
